BIG ANNOUNCEMENT- The Journey to "Everybody Let's Get Cookin'"
Today is the day! We are so excited to share our second children's book with you all! You may know that 8 months ago, we published our very first book Everybody Love Your Body, a body-positive children's book. We also started our For Purpose business Harper and Hunter LLC. 2020 was a very difficult time for us and the nation. Hunter was born in June and had not one, but two separate stays in the NICU. It was also during the pandemic and the very emotional time of racial unrest. We are based in Minneapolis and the effects of George Floyd's untimely death were felt throughout the entire state.
Although this journey has not been easy, we have had so much success and support along the way. A chance encounter with a giving soul on the Clubhouse App in January helped us spring the second book into action! We were able to take the financial gift, and use it to start the process all over again. Although we had different visions on what this second book should be about, ultimately Harper's idea reigned supreme. She wanted a book about food, so here we are.
We took her love for food and used it as a teachable moment to learn about food insecurity, hunger and what that means for millions of children. We also took the idea for the book and turned it into action by hosting a benefit that will impact so many people! Being 4 years old doesn't mean that she can't make a difference in the world so as we learn and contribute to our community, we also are having fun with food and spending time in the kitchen together. Even Hunter makes a small cameo in this book!
We hope you enjoy Everybody Let's Get Cookin' as much as we do and stay tuned for what we have in store next!
Thank you all for the continued support!
Paulette, Harper (and Hunter too!)
