Donation for Military Children

Thanks to a generous donation from Leopold’s Ice Cream in Savannah, we were able to deliver almost 2,000 books to Fort Stewart today. These books will be distributed through Morale, Welfare and Recreation to each of the kids ages 3-8 in the Child Development Centers on both Ft. Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.

One of our foundation’s aims is to raise awareness of kids with disabilities. We can’t wait for the young children of our nation’s service members to dig in to the books!

Huge thanks to Leopold’s and also the staff at MWR Ft. Stewart for making this happen!

Why it Matters

It matters. Children need books with characters that represent the world around them. Books with characters of different races, religions and physical abilities–just to name a few. Middle grade novels are doing much better with inclusion and representation than they were even a few years ago. But we have a long way to go. Especially with picture books.

We ran the Kickstarter campaign for Jeremiah Justice Saves the Day last year, because we wanted to go beyond what’s out there already. We wanted to create a superhero with a remarkable ability, unlike any other. Thanks to Rashad Doucet‘s brilliance, we did just that. We were able to raise the funds to publish the book up front, which allows us to donate the proceeds of the book to this foundation.

Please help us share the news. With your help, we can raise the funds to publish more superhero books with special needs characters. Thanks for your support!
