Thank you.

Oh, y’all… I just want to say thank you. Thank you so much for letting me fill your FB everyday with my Kickstarter. Only 9 days left… Yippee!!

Asking for help – asking for money – is SO not my thing. I like to give far, far more.

But because I know that ultimately, this cartoon will give to so, so many children – far more than I can reach with school visits, far more than my Storytime Live, far more than even my books – I have asked. For 22 days in a row.

And lordee, it’s been so emotionally hard to ask people for money multiple times a day, every day. I think of all the other people who need help too. Then I feel guilty. So, so guilty.

Then I go back to my WHY. And I know I have to keep putting it out there.

And also? I LOVE that we are doing this TOGETHER. People from all over this country – different races, different religions, different orientations, different cultures. Oh man, talk about MAGICAL. We all need this magic these days. That, I know.

Thank you to the incredible 381 Backers who have given their hard-earned money to help make this dream a reality so far. Thank you to the ones of you planning to, but haven’t yet. You give me faith in us as a human race. I will NOT let you down.

Thank you to the hundreds of others who have shared my Kickstarter link and supported me emotionally.

You are in my heart forever and I am forever grateful.

9 more days, y’all. The #WhatifKickstarter ends Sept. 18 – on the day I leave for my first week of school visits where I will talk to a few thousand kids. I can’t think of a better way to end such an incredible journey. ❤️

And just in case you need it…
