The first of its kind journal for children looks to investors to help spread word and increase distribution
Press Release – APRIL 12, 2017: Big Life Journal – the world’s first journal designed to inspire entrepreneurship, creativity and positivity for children – has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to enhance the lives of children across the USA.
The journal has been created by storywriters, poets, illustrators and graphic designers and is looking for funding to increase distribution and fulfill its mission of helping children on the path to success.
Created and curated by husband and wife duo, Alexandra and Scott Eidens from New York, the journal aims to help parents tackle the changing face of the workforce environment and teach children the importance of qualities such as: persistence, gratitude and mindfulness.
The 52 page, 26 week hardback journal seeks to develop a growth mindset and guide children ages 6-11 through topics such as ‘why it is important to help others’ and ‘be persistent.’ Poems, quotes and writing aim to teach children the qualities that will help them be successful adults such as: optimism, persistence, embracing failure, taking action and dreaming big.
Alexandra comments: “Big Life Journal is much more than another children’s book or diary, this is a book that can and will shape the future of children. When compiling the book we wanted to draw on qualities that inspirational people possess, such as Richard Branson, Sara Blakely, Tim Ferris and Sheryl Sandberg. Big Life Journal identified qualities that got them where they are today, such as courage and empathy.”
Scott adds: “It is important for children to understand there are many components to being a successful adult and one of those is mindfulness. Mindfulness is not just associated hippie culture and instead is identified as an important aspect of dealing with the stresses and pressures of adult life. Alongside thought-provoking poems and stories, journaling itself has been proven to evoke mindfulness and improve communication skills.”
To help Big Life Journal on their mission, visit the Kickstarter page where backers can pledge to shape the children of the future and receive special discounted rates on Big Life Journals for their own little ones.
The Big Life Journal Kickstarter campaign will run from 12th April – 12th May 2017.
