Crowdsourcing Mornings: Ivy The Very Determined Dog

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.

Ivy the Very Determined Dog is an inspiring children’s book (launching April 2019) about overcoming life’s challenges and finding your inner strength. This true story also exposes children to disabilities in a fun and empowering way.Who is Ivy you ask? Well, she is the bravest (and cutest) five year old french bulldog you have ever met! Two years ago, on her birthday (of all days), Ivy suddenly became paralyzed in her back legs due to a rare genetic spinal disease called IVDD. (Get it? Ivy the Very Determined Dog…)

Throughout the book, Ivy teaches us to never give up, to embrace your individuality, and most importantly to always “keep on rolling whatever you do and never let anything get the better of you!”  Ivy’s inspiring story has already reached the hearts of millions of people. She was featured on The Dodo (video above) and The Little Things. She has also made a guest appearance on local news to support her friends at the French Bulldog Rescue Network. In doing so, she showed Boston that a handicapped animal can still live a meaningful and happy life.

As of October 29th, this project has raised $9,500 of their $5,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $25, you will get one autographed hardcover book.  For a pledge of $50, you will get one book, and they will donate one book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
