What was your dream as a child? Did you want to grow up and become the president? An artist? A famous actor? An author? Ever wonder what your life would’ve been like? Ever work toward that path? Did you have the support you needed to achieve that goal?
A talented friend on mine is finally fulfilling her dream to become a children’s author. Louisa Luisi is a teacher who wrote her first book Your Best Coaches. It is a children’s picture book about a young boy on a baseball team and whose best coaches in life are his mother and father. This book has a very important message: through high and low points in life, your parents will always be there to root for you.
She is using Kickstarter to try to help fund the start-up costs of her project and has 17 days left to raise half of the money. By pledging even $10 to this talented and sweet young woman, you’re helping someone’s dreams come true. By pledging $25 you get a hardcopy of the book, which would make a fantastic gift for a young child in your life.

If your childhood dream was right around the corner, would you want others to help you?
