You know how you reeeealllly want a Flip Video? You know how I always say that you (yes, you) can help stop child trafficking? Here's how you can do both.
First let me introduce you to artist Leah Wiedemer, who did the adorable illustrations in my children's book series, Adventures With PawPaw. Right now Leah is busy illustrating the wordless picture book for the Born to Fly project to stop child trafficking.
The other day she came up with an idea to help raise funds to get the B2F materials printed and into the hands of kids around the world. She uploaded onto CafePress some of the illustrations from the Adventures With PawPaw books--and she's donating 100% of the proceeds to Born to Fly. Pretty cool, huh?
If you've never seen CafePress, check it out. Leah has 50 different items with adorable PawPaw illustrations on them -- everything from baby onesies to mouse pads to (you guessed it) Flip Videos. Really cool stuff. Here are some samples and you can find more on CafePress:
So, about that Flip Video you've been wanting? Why not order it with a cute PawPaw illustration on it? (Leah can customize it for you with any of the illustrations you see; just leave me a comment and I'll get it to her.) Whatever you order--whether it's a Flip Video or a magnet--Leah is donating 100% of her proceeds to stop child trafficking.
In the coming week, I'm going to post more examples of people like Leah making a difference. (If you know one, leave a comment here.)
