We had such FUN last week at the BOOK LAUNCH of "Dot and Frank". The launch was held in a shack in Khayelitsha, for around 150 kids. You will see in the pictures, the before-and-after look of the shack. We decorated the shack with art from our Kids Delft Art Programme. We celebrated singing and dancing down the streets of Khayelitsha, with a local kids and teens african dance group.
In the book Dot and Frank are illustrated as cupcakes, so Bev and Louise had some fun and dressed up as cupcakes and enacted the book to the kids. :) The story encourages kids to not give up, even though life can be filled with challenges.
Dream Big, Work Hard and Never Give Up!
All the kids received their very own Dot and Frank kit...and of course a cupcake :) We had such a great day! They were so excited! The kit consisted of the book, colouring crayons, a tooth brush and a healthy snack.
The book was written by Ethan. As most of you might know, Ethan raised his own money to have the book printed in SA, as well as pay for the kits. The kits will be handed out to children in poor communities in the Western Cape. Big thank you to his mom Kari and his 2 sisters for all their support.
Thank you to Weslee for all your hard work with digitalising the book. Thank you Ebba from Propel Afrika for taking the pictures at the launch!
Lots of Love
