Crowdsourcing Mornings: Olive The Dog Who Was Really A Frog

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

This new picture book has a story all about about identity and acceptance. “Olive The Dog Who Was Really A Frog” encourages individual differences to be universally accepted, to nurture friendships and promote strength through diversity.  The book is inspired by a real life Miniature Schnauzer, Olive, and her not-so-dog-like behaviour. Ever since she was a puppy, she has jumped more than walked, and licked more than barked. Along with the influence of friends and family in the LGBTQ community, the idea for the book was born!

After many months of devotion to the project, the work on the book itself is all finished! Various samples have already been gone through to tweak the artwork for print, and the design for the book poster is done. Printing has been tested, with finalised samples of all products having already been produced.  The funds for this project will very simply go towards bulk printing the material, as well as framing, packaging and shipping, to fulfill backer pledges. This is a self-published project, so funds will also be used to register an ISBN for the book. Hopefully it will also be possible to create future sales avenues, to make the book available past this campaign.

As of November 13th, this project has raised $3,170 of their $3,936 goal. This project has 4 days left to raise the $3,936 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $7, you will get one eBook.  For a pledge of $16, you will get one eBook and paperback.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
