CrowdFunding promotion Teen Self Esteem Program and Guidebook: Powerful You

posted Jan 20, 2015, 2:18 AM by J Shaw   [ updated Jan 20, 2015, 2:25 AM ]

A self esteem program and guidebook to help our teens deal with issues like suicide, depression, bullying, anorexia and violence.

About this project

My name is Brandi and I have been speaking to inspire teens ever since I was 12 years old. I would consider myself a motivational speaker,  but to me a one hour motivational speech is not enough to change lives. We needed a program with continuous support throughout the school year for our teens that also involves parents and teachers so we build a community of self esteem for our future generations. I have finally prepared the program but as I do this as my passion I don't have the funds to get this book and program into as many schools as I would like... i need your help.

 The $10,000 will go towards publishing the book for teens, as well as facilitating free seminars for the parents/teachers/students. I am now 30 years old and have literally spent the last 10 years working with teens in different countries around the world, and collecting stories of overcoming self esteem issues so that I may better facilitate this self esteem work shop. Join me. I wont let you down. Together we will save lives.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges in a project this ambitious. My aim is to change the world. Some of the problems I foresee possibly happening include: 
1 - not getting to the funding mark (if that happens i will try again or keep saving money from my current full time job until i get a book into every high school in North America) 
2 - finding a publisher for the book wont be an obstacle because self publishing is easy... it doesnt need to be pretty, but it needs to be in the hands of teens everywhere 
Finally - this is not a project on a whim, i have been planning and studying and organizing from the time i graduated high school (if not before) and i know that no matter what arises i have a dedicated team of people who want to help this project happen for our future generations so we will be okay.
