Crowdsourcing Mornings: Born To Stand Out: A Story About Finding Your True Colors

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.

Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at:

Born To Stand Out was inspired by a conversation I had with my school-aged children one day when they came home from school talking about not fitting into their peer group. I encouraged them not to blend in like a chameleon but to be confident in who they are and in doing the right thing.

I later found out that chameleons mostly don’t change color to blend in after all, they often “STAND OUT”! This sparked an idea for a book, so will you join me? Let’s inspire kids around the world to shine bright and be who they were created to be!

Born To Stand Out is a color-filled story about Camo the chameleon finding his “true colors”. Camo loves being with his friends, but sometimes, although he looks like he blends in, he doesn’t really feel like he belongs. When his friends tease each other, Camo laughs too, even though he doesn’t really think it’s funny. Sometimes they all wear bow ties, but Camo finds them uncomfortable. Whatever his friends are doing Camo does too, until.

One day Camo decides to do something different and discovers how good it feels to be true to himself. He also finds that when he is confident in who he is, he inspires others to do the same, and the world becomes a more colorful place!
