book: support author & illustrator rashad malik davis for new book carefree, like me! : an illustrated children’s adventure

September 20, 2016

The uplift and affirmation of children of diverse backgrounds is paramount in all times, but especially in times like these. Between police brutality, gender and sexuality discrimination, and lack of mental health resources for Black and Brown youth, it’s important that when the opportunity presents itself, that every effort is made to support those who want to support the kids. Rashad Malik Davis, a young illustrator and storyteller, is crowdfunding for his new series “Carefree Like Me.” In the words of the author himself: “Introducing “Carefree Like Me”, the illustrated tales of a sensitive, heart-on-your-sleeve type kid named Amir, his no-nonsense, rough and tumble best friend Neena, and the grand adventure they find themselves on in a whole ‘nother realm! This will be the first book in a series of 7, each book dedicated to telling a larger story with a focus on a particular hero and a brand new adventure. This is my first venture into publishing my own work, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it to life. What I need from you, however, is your help in making it come to life. Please support the project on Kickstarter through any donation you can make or even through a simple share on your social media pages! Every penny goes towards the creation of this project and ultimately in affirming every child.” Please watch the Kickstarter video below and consider supporting this noble cause!
