The group is called Big Class and they are using Kickstarter, a site that hosts fundraisers online to support various artistic projects, to get their own project funded.
They are looking to raise $20,000 for 10 projects on their 2011-2012 book list. These intelligent and creative kids will write the books and the adults will do the illustrating. The $20,000 is needed obviously for the cost of printing the books, shipping, book events, and equipment. Once produced these students will give their books to kids in New Orleans for free!
Yeah go ahead and read that last line again! These young students are a clear example of what we as adults need to shoot for. If you wanna support check them out at Kickstarter!
Peace and luv!
