The Red Fred Project finds children living in extraordinary circumstances and asks them the question: If you could write a book for the entire world to read, what would it be about? The books use photography, graphic design, story-telling techniques and star a likable group of birds made from commas and exclamation marks called The Jolly Troop.
Why are we doing this? These creative kids have faced significant challenges in short lifetimes—with humor, compassion and wisdom-filled stories to share. We want to know how they view the world and help them create an original, one-of-a-kind book, publish it, place it in their hands and say, "Way to go! You've published a story; you've created a book!"
We will studiously and gratefully select a child (a “Creative”) from each state and make him or her the creative boss in the story and book-making process; I’m just there to bring the story to life through photography, design and The Jolly Troop.
The child will meet with me a number of times to complete creative tasks that will result in his or her published book.
The book then becomes many magical things: a lasting voice for these children’s beautiful stories; a tangible achievement for each child; a way to help families with medical expenses or a related cause chosen by the child.
You see? The magic multiplies, lives on forever – readers are inspired by the wisdom and imagination of these children.
The parent(s) will also be given charge of the book's future. They are welcome to keep the few we give them at the completion of the project, to order several more for their family and friends, or to use it for fundraising purposes for their child's treatments. In any respect, the story conjured and created by this significant child will become an object of incredible value.
