In honor of July 30th World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, Paper & Seed will donate 100% of publisher and illustrator profits from sales of “A Month of Mindful Moments: A Guidebook & Journal for Girls” to the Comisión Unidos vs Trata ’10 Days vs Trafficking (10 Días de Activismo vs Trata)’ campaign from July 26-August 6, 2021.
Paper & Seed’s goal is to sell at least 1,000 books from July 26 to August 6 to raise money for the campaign. Non-profit organization Comisión Unidos vs Trata is directed by anti-trafficking activist Rosi Orozco, former Mexican Congresswoman and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize nominee. According to Orozco, a donor has agreed to match funds raised during the 10 Días de Activismo vs Trata campaign, and funds will be used to build a new shelter for girls in Mexico among other anti-trafficking projects.
“Every girl is important. Every girl matters. Every girl needs to know that she is worthy of respect and love, and that she has the power to make a difference in the world around her,” says illustrator and Paper & Seed founder Rebecca Dias.
“A Month of Mindful Moments: A Guidebook & Journal for Girls,” by Canadian guidance counselor, educator and author Laura D’Angelo, M.Ed., illustrated by Rebecca Dias, provides creative activities, prompts and reflections that inspire self-exploration and group discussion about self-esteem, growth mindset and emotional health for girls. Research-based mindfulness techniques and easy-to-understand explanations empower girls with social emotional tools to navigate challenges with confidence and courage, and to learn more about themselves in the process.
