In our I Wish You Happiness Kickstarter campaign (June, 2020), I pledged to donate 100 copies of I Wish You Happiness to the Barnardos Gifts for Kids Christmas Appeal. An incredible 195 backers helped us achieve our goal. Molly Tobias (California, USA) kindly donated two more copies.
I personally handed over 102 copies of I Wish You Happiness to Marie Umbrazunas, Community Fundraising Manager at Barnardos, on November 18, 2020. That Christmas, 102 underprivileged kids who might not otherwise have received a gift received a copy of I Wish You Happiness.
It felt so good that I decided I wanted to continue to give back to empower and inspire underprivileged kids. Books are such wonderful gifts. They provide entertainment, education, inspiration, and spark children’s imaginations.
If you believe in what we’re doing, you may add a tip at the checkout to donate $5 a copy of I Wish You Happiness to an underprivileged child in your country. You’ll feel wonderful knowing that you’re helping an underprivileged child. And, maybe, your donation will have a profound impact on their future. You’ll also receive our gratitude and a shout-out on this Donations page.
September 22, 2021: We’re donating 12 copies to Tree House Books via Little Bags by Anna. Tree House Books is a Giving Library and Literacy Center headquartered in North Philadelphia. They provide free books to children and families, and Out of School Time (OST) programs. Tree House Books is a registered nonprofit 501c3 organization.
I will donate more books to underprivileged children in Australia via a local charity in late 2021.
Thank you so much to all of these generous customers for donating I Wish You Happiness to underprivileged children. ❤️
