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.

I personally handed over 102 copies of I Wish You Happiness to Marie Umbrazunas, Community Fundraising Manager at Barnardos, on November 18, 2020.

This included two copies generously donated by Molly Tobias (California, USA). As a result, 102 disadvantaged children who might not have otherwise received a gift this past Christmas 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 disadvantaged kids. Books are such wonderful gifts. They provide entertainment, education, inspiration, and spark children’s imaginations.

Customers who believe in what we’re doing have the option to add a tip at the checkout. Donate $5 or more, and I’ll donate a copy of I Wish You Happiness to a disadvantaged child in your country.

You’ll feel wonderful knowing that you’re helping a disadvantaged child. And, maybe, your donation has a profound impact on their future.

You’ll also receive our deepest gratitude, and a shout-out on our Donations page.

Thank you so much to all of these incredibly generous customers for donating I Wish You Happiness to disadvantaged children. ❤️ I’ll donate the books to disadvantaged children in the United States and Australia via local charities in late 2021.
