Fourth week at No. 1, thanks to you

We're so honored that you've made Painting for Peace in Ferguson the No. 1 children's book in St. Louis for the fourth straight week. Many of you have told us that this project is making a difference for young readers as they share the message of hope, and a glimpse of what our community can be when we all work together for a common goal.

Painting for Peace starts conversations across the nation

We're excited to share that Painting for Peace in Ferguson has been featured prominently in media nationwide, and grateful for the response we've received to the book. We were even fortunate enough to have been asked by Arianna Huffington and the Huffington Post to contribute to their "Impact: What's Working" column. Paperbacks are flying off the shelves, hardbacks are in stores now and we are in the process of printing a second edition already! We also had the great honor of making the #1 spot for Bestselling Children's Book in St. Louis 2 weeks in a row. Thank you all for all of your support. We couldn't have done any of this without your art, your love and your help every step of the way.
