MISSION BUILT NOT BOUGHT
MISSION BUILT NOT BOUGHT is my personal mission to empower children while at the same time honoring and showcasing careers in the skilled trades and the brilliant craftsmen and women who work in the trades, and to close the skills gap in the workforce.
I've created characters, children and skilled tradesmen who teach them, that are the foundation of this mission.
These characters empower children to build self esteem, learn work ethic, grow problem solving skills, and cultivate pride in craftsmanship through a children's book series, a Saturday morning cartoon show, and toys!
All profit will be used to further this mission and create and fund skilled trade programs worldwide!
I NEED to give back to a community that saved my life (Story Here) and give children the tools I needed as a child to stand up to bullys, not be influenced by peer pressure, and empower my life!
Write and publish a four book series and donate one set of books to every elementary school in the United States, approximately 90,000 schools, 360,000 total books donated!
Create a Saturday morning cartoon series featuring the characters from the book series!
Create action figures and toys!
Create and fund trades programs all around the world starting with the United States!
PHASE ONE IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY!
I've already written the 4 books! To complete Phase One I need to hire an illustrator to bring the characters to life, have the books edited, formatted, published, and donate 360,000 books to elementary schools!
I NEED YOUR HELP!
I'm personally funding this mission.
