First birthday party charity partner revealed
KidLit TV embraces and encourages creativity and access to the arts, so it’s only natural we’ve teamed up with Tad Hills, John Lombardo and ArtWorks for Youth, an organization that provides free visual art instruction, academic support and mentoring to students in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
One of their many initiatives is called “Safe Passages,” which are paths between children’s homes and schools, which include public art.
We will sponsor a silent auction during the event where featured artwork created by kidlit illustrators will be available for purchase throughout the entire evening. Proceeds from all sales will benefit ArtWorks for Youth.
KidLit TV launches website redesign
As the first multimedia website designed to help parents and educators explore the world of children’s literature, KidLit TV is committed to making the site as welcoming as possible for kids, parents and teachers. To help us achieve this goal, our website will be getting a mini makeover. Soon, it will be even easier for schools and libraries to access KidLit TV’s resources.
All of this has been possible BECAUSE OF YOU! Your support has been amazing and we’ve grown because just like the kid lit community, we are a family.
KidLit TV helps our community of children’s book creators share their work with you!
Over the pass few months we’ve realized that kid lit creators could use our help making book trailers. KidLit TV will now host the first ever out-of-house book trailer service. Many publishers offer services for their clients, but if a publisher doesn’t or the author is self-published, KidLit TV is here to deliver a book trailer from them to you.
