How to buy one for children in your home, work or region
Aspire4u mentors young people to develop their mindset, financial literacy and employability. Working with Joan Blaney we use these books as a positive opportunity for young people to earn money. In addition to this we aim to do some social good. Our mentees come from various walks of life and our programme Arts4Lyfe (with Lyfeproof – youth engagement brand) is a positive diversionary activity to help young people resist the lure of risky or harmful behaviours.
The young people hone their e-commerce (and general online trading) skills. They organise and pack the books. Then post them or they sell at libraries or specific collection points across the region.
Schools, libraries, care homes, hospital schools and settings for young people would benefit from having this resource material for their young people. Special bulk deals can be arranged so the book can be purchased for less than the recommended retail price of £3.99 each. Click here to order for the children in your life or work place.
Parents, child minders and community groups may want to come together and buy a few to own and donate the rest to other children in their neighbourhood. We would love to hear from you and get these positive wellbeing books in communities where healthy conversations matter.
