I had the honor of meeting with Joni and her Characters of Character. I got to see first hand the powerful impact that these characters have on children and even put a big smile on adults faces! She shared her struggles financially with printing, marketing and attending exhibits with her program which makes sense. I don't understand why funding is so difficult to obtain for such a good caucse. Don't let this worthy, reputable and hard working organization fall by the way side, they make a difference!

Joni introduced animals as "Characters of Character" to me several years ago. Each animal professes a simple memorable message that address conditions that affect our pre and primary grade school children and their families. I have several of the Characters posted in my office. My colleagues at work are captured by the Characters and often comment: ..."just what I need", ..."my grandkids would love this",..."this should be in my child's classroom". When children visit my office, some immediately recognize the animals; with a little encouragement from a supportive adult the learning process continues for the child. Each animal has a message and children are asked to tell us the message. The method and environment in which the message is conveyed can play an important role in support of parents and teachers. I am sincere in my belief that "Characters of Character" can improve conditions that affect our youth and can lead to the realization of positive outcomes in the development of our youth. I am a parent/grandparent. My grandkids recognize the Characters and the messages that they "tell them"! Philip (IL Dept. of Human Svcs.)

Hosting Characters of Character at our bookstore is always a joy. The children love meeting the character and the parents are thrilled with the programming and what their children are able to take away.

After learning about Healthy Hippo, my kids think twice about saying "NO" to their vegetables! These characters have a simple way of engaging children into good choices, we love the CHARACTERS! Kole and Paige's mom

Characters of Character is a brilliant organization that encourages kids to reach their full potential. As a teacher's assistant, I witnessed first-hand how the Characters taught the kids important life lesssons. Characters of Character is truly making a positive impact on the future generation.

Character of Characters is truly innovated for the children. In the world we live in, everyone is under so much stress (work or family) that we sometimes forget the most important part, OUR CHILDREN. Character of Characters enforces the values of every day life. Getting along with everybody, reaching out to people who are less fortunate and just be kind and a caring person. Our children need that enforcement. The Characters make this learning process fun to the children and it also instills that getting this education from a cute animal will make them stay in school, explore the possibilities of excelling in life. This was a great idea Joni came up with and I know she has lots of support from friends and family. I just wish this wonderful program would be accepted in all if not most of the pre-elementry schools. It's worth the investment to the education sector.

The Characters of Character program is an excellent program to teach children the everyday values that they so desperately need today. I have volunteered at events and can say that seeing the children interact with the characters is truly a worthwhile experience and can tell that they love it.

volunteering for events and seeing the children's manners.

I had the honor of working with Joni as the Characters of Character were being developed. She spent a huge amount of time reflecting on her years of teaching and determining where the needs were of the school. Through her characters, our students were able to focus on positive behavior and learn exactly what it looks like! The adorable characters told a story to the students which enabled them to remember exactly what positive behavior is all about. I highly recommend this program to any school district! Not only did Joni work with the entire school, but she spent time with individual teachers in order to implement Characters of Character in the most successful way!

The Great!
