What Can You Do With Just One Dollar?
When my kids were small we had a zillion books in the cutest library. They loved to read and it was important to me to have that library full of books about diversity and social issues. While What Can You Do with Just One Dollar wasn’t around then, it is now and it will make the perfect addition to any children’s library.
This post is sponsored which means I received compensation for it. My opinion is all my own and it is truthful.
From the time my kids were small we wanted them to learn about giving and caring about others so we filled their library with books that discussed giving and then used those as a jumping off point for talking moments. So when I found out about What Can You Do With Just One Dollar I was interested in hearing more.
New Children’s Book Shows Kids the Positive Impact They Can Make
What Can You Do with Just One Dollar?, written by Toronto fundraising executive and new children’s book author Teresa Vasilopoulos, focuses on diversity and inclusion and illustrates that all kids (no matter their background or circumstances) can enjoy the feeling of pride and accomplishment when they give. The book’s illustrator, Vic Guiza, is an award-winning illustrator who has worked with brands such as Disney and Marvel Comics.
All proceeds from the book go to WoodGreen Community Services to help alleviate poverty in Toronto. This cute new children’s book shows kids how they can make a big difference with a small act of kindness.
“With so many tragic stories in the news lately, children might feel a loss of control and sense that they don’t have the ability to make a difference or create change,” said Vasilopoulos. “This book helps to inspire and empower children to create a positive impact within their lives, their community or the world.”
