Inspired by The Laughing Angels and packed with powerful information, You’re A Miracle…Pass It On! will enlighten, inspire and motivate kids by inviting them to learn:

  • The healing power of laughter
  • To celebrate and treasure the values of the past
  • To take simple actions to help others that can change the world
  • To nurture creativity in whatever form
  • To take better care of our planet
  • To nurture peace

Biographies and photos of people who have made (and are making) a difference in the world are combined to highlight such diverse and inspirational people as Jane Addams, Amber Coffman, Gandhi, Patch Adams, Martin Luther King, Anne Frank, Craig Kielburger, Mary Cassatt, Chief Seattle, Nkosi Johnson and many, many more!  Links to organizations creating positive changes (many founded by kids) are also featured.

Today’s kids are the creators of tomorrow’s world.  You’re A Miracle…Pass It On! will challenge kids to step up to the plate and make a difference in the world by facilitating awareness, presenting positive values, offering motivation and inspiration and calling kids to action.  When you know something exists and how it works you can make it real in your life and pass it on!
