Don't have time to donate right now?
We are raising funds for the entirely non-profit Manx Bedtime Stories Project, crafting magical tales for young children from start to finish.
What started as a literary adventure for the author has snowballed to become a blossoming series full of magic and adventure.
Each book in the Manx Bedtime Stories Project provides an opportunity for a young Manx artist to illustrate a book, whilst raising £1000 for a local Manx charity and providing a positive bedtime story for hundreds of children... now that's worth supporting!
So far we have raised £1000 for Autism in Mann with the first book, 'No Entry', £1000 for Breast Cancer Now IOM with the second book, 'PINK: The Adventures of a Manx Fairy' and £1000 for Isle Listen with the third book, 'RED: A Manx Dragon Called Rufus'. But it doesn't stop there...
The next book in the series, 'BLUE', aims to raise £1000 for the Age Concern IOM Hardship fund, helping to improve the health & well-being of our older people on the island. To learn more about the work of this wonderful charity visit their website here.
'BLUE' follows the journey of an old Manx fire engine called Walter, forgotten and replaced, when an incident reveals the importance of learning from your elders and the wisdom they can impart. A heartwarming story about a loveable fire engine, and the value of the elderly.
Each magical bedtime story embeds a positive moral message for young children, encouraging a greater understanding of the world around them by delving deep into the world of the Magical Kingdom...
PINK - is about daring to dream.
RED - is about finding your own voice.
BLUE - is about the wisdom that comes with age.
In the works for 2023 there is also...
GREEN - all about kindness
YELLOW - about the importance of friendship
Donating to this cause will help make a positive difference for many local individuals, businesses and charities, by contributing towards getting 'BLUE' published and printed just in time for Christmas 2022.
To say a BIG thank you for leaving a donation today, no matter how big or small, we invite you to download all the digital versions of the books for FREE over at Bunch Books. We hope you enjoy reading them and would love to hear your feedback!
