To teach valuable mindfulness skills to children of all ages while fostering a greater awareness and appreciation for animals at risk.
To create an integrated community of educators, parents and children who are committed to building awareness and global citizenship
We provide enriching resources that culture the essential emotional regulation skills of children through activities at the back of each book and on the website
We live in a period of time where our daily actions have an immediate and profound impact on the animals in our environment. Unfortunately, due to lack of consciousness or care, the list of threatened, endangered and species at risk continues to grow. Awareness is a powerful tool for making responsible decisions to support and not devastate the biodiversity of our planet.
We would like to share some background on the animals who inspired the characters of the mindful mates series.
The Vancouver Island Marmot is Canada’s most endangered species. It enjoys lounging on rocks with its friends. Marmots lose 1/3 of their body weight during hibernation and emerge from their dens simply starving!
foundations we support
The mindful mates series was written with the intention of fostering greater awareness of animals at risk. All of the characters in the books are endangered species. One dollar from each book sold will be donated to the rehabilitation of these animals. Proceeds from:
Book 1-Marmot Recovery Foundation
