Mission: PALS AROUND THE WORLD is a series of celebrity and educationally endorsed children's books teaching love, unity and the importance of giving back to help children and the environment. Each book is based on a different country, with a chance for children to connect to their very own pen-pal. As a 501c3 nonprofit - we donate our educational program and books with schools, after schools, libraries and related charities aligned with making the world a better place for our children.
In support of children , $2.00 from independent sales of hard copy books goes directly to Children International along with help/support to a myriad of other causes helping children and the environment.
Each hardcopy book is eco-friendly - with two trees planted for every tree used to manufacture each PALS AROUND THE WORLD book in partnership with Global Releaf and American Forestry
Results: As a nonprofit , we are focused on fundraising efforts to develop and publish more eco-friendly and online educational books and continue to share our program./outreach to more schools, libraries and organizations who have the same "mission and vision" to improve our children's lives and education. Together we can create a better world for our children. One of love, peace and greater understanding.
Target demographics: Children age 6 and up.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Numerous libraries, schools and after school programs across the United States
Geographic areas served: Schools (LA, South Florida and NY for starters.. expanding nationally and internationally
Programs: Pals educational books and program go with Pals Ambassadors to schools, All Stars After school programs and libraries that need our help. As our world changes, we are changing too! We supply eco-friendly text books for those who dont have technology yet and developing ways of leaving our carbon footprint by developing funds to also share Pals books electronically in the future along with our Electronic toolkit (housing our latest Green tips, brochures for a international pen-pal through CI, guided lesson plans for Ambassador visits and our "ART FROM THE HEART" contest for Spain allow us to share our work globally with no borders. As a nonprofit that publishes educational text books we are busy! Now, all we need is the funds to do it!. $25,000 to produce and release 1 new PAL AROUND THE WORLD book a year on a different country with our educational "think tank" to provide what are kids need in the NOW is not a lot of funds to make a big impact on our children and a better future!
I absolutely believe Pals Around the World is not only a great nonprofit, but an INCREDIBLE one! Their mission to spread cultures to children and the ambassadors that spread their message through story time is so needed in our world! This nonprofit brings people together and shows us how we are all one big family with a little uniqueness of our own.

The Pals Around The World is an amazing organization doing terrific work teaching our kids to be interested, appreciate and respect other countries and cultures. This organization is forming responsable and respectful people in our multicultural society. I was amazed by the response of the kids and teachers to our presentation and how they were engaged and enjoying the opportunity .
I truly believe in children, and feel that a non profit like Pals around the World help them understand better other cultures, and learn about the things we do have in common, rather than what we don't.
Pals Around the World provides wonderful opportunities for deserving youths. Their ambassadors have come to several After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles schools, and students have been truly inspired in the joys of reading.
I've had the immense honor of performing at a local LA school as a contribution to the organization a couple years ago. I am a Physics Teacher / Musician, and I've been producing educational science rock shows for several years now. By utilizing the principals of articulation, reading comprehension, and creative expression through story-telling, the essense of Pals truly lets the students come out of their shell. During my presentation, we had the students work on creating lyrics and rhythm development in the name of science. It is obvious to me that the understanding of science and math supersedes cultural boundaries, and the look of wonder in a child's eye is universal. I appreciate everything that Leslye does for the kids, and I'm glad to be involved.
