Dear Friends of Ivy,
I have officially launched the Kickstarter website. This will allow me to do as much marketing and advertising as I can, posting press releases and making an Ivy mark on blogs everywhere!
With the new video uploaded the launch of the Ivy Kickstarter campaign is official! Even Buddy makes an appearance at the end by sticking his nose up to see what is going on, make sure you watch for him.
I invite you into my humble home, into my ordinary world and alongside my exciting journey back to Ivy! I am ready to create and dream again.
Setting the event duration for 60 days will bring the end of the campaign right up to the holidays. Together, we can gift the young patients at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital some Ivy wonderment in the upcoming new year.By grace, I am here on borrowed time ready to serve and do as much as I can, (including warbling on the mountaintop with the mountain goats if I must), to inspire you and your children to lead a life of happiness and joy.
Ivy’s hidden messages encourages people not only to dream, but also how to deal with life’s ups and downs, giving us a huge advantage as we maneuver through life. Scientific studies have proven this mindset will reduce depression and anxiety in our daily activities. It will curb stress throughout our adult years, improving resilience and significantly enhancing the ability to cope with adversity.
The Ivy & Innocence storybook is filled with stories portraying an optimistic message that have an uplifting impact on the reader, young or old. Children are so perceptive and, as parents, we need to express a positive outlook and view challenges as a learning opportunity so our children will follow suit. When we lead by example, we are teaching them.
Hope is a key aspect of optimism. When we understand life is an exciting gift and each day holds something new, we are nurturing a positive outlook on life. This creates an exciting future not only for you, but for your children… growing up to become the adults that go out exploring, inventing, and discovering ways to make our world a better place.
Let’s encourage our children to dream. Inspire them with uplifting, positive stories so they develop an optimistic attitude that fills them with wonder because who knows what amazing things they will aspire to do in the future.
Have a wonderful, inspired evening and may Ivy bring you sweet dreams,
