School Visit

We have just had a pledge from Eastern Fleurieu School, R-6 Campus at Strathalbyn, South Australia, to come and speak to the classes next year. By then we will have copies of the book to share with students, which is very exciting.

With 13 hours to go of our Crowdfunding Campaign we have gone over out target and are at $11,303 as I write this, which means we will possibly have the funds to translate the book into at least one Asian language.

Huge thanks to everyone who has supported our campaign.

Let’s Translate Now!

We have reached our funding target! This is so exciting. The book will happen!!! What a momentous day!

A HUGE thankyou from the team for all of your pledges.

But please, if you were thinking of pledging and haven’t…any extra funds will be used to translate the book into Khmer, Thai, Lao, Burmese…so that children in these countries can also enjoy and learn from the story “One Step at a Time.”

Takepart…Amazing website with Eyes of Thailand Video

Have a look at this website. It has an article about elephants and landmines and a trailer of the film, “Eyes of Thailand” which is heartbreaking and inspirational at the same time.

Take a minute out of your day to view it.

24 Days To Go of Crowdfunding

As of today we are at $7281 of our targeted $10,000. With 24 days to go we are ever hopeful that we will reach our target and get the book published.

We are still looking for a school which can pledge $1000 and have Sally and Jane come out to the school for a three hour session to talk about the book and its journey so far. So if you know a school librarian or have a connection with a school, please spread the word about this potential author/illustrator visit they could have.

Update on Crowdfunding

As of today we are at $6881, with 95 supporters and 28 days to go. A great effort from all of our supporters. Thankyou!

We are still working on trying to attract an Adelaide school to pledge the $1000 to get Sally and Jane to go out to the school for a 3 hour author/illustrator presentation. This would be excellent value for a school, so if you know of a potential school, please spread the word!
