Colour Our Story

Project 2020-11-16 17:43:05 +1300

 

I'm Michelle, Founder of a global, creative initiative Colour Our Story. Colour Our Story facilitates the creation of colouring-in books and colouring-in greeting cards filled with beautiful and unique drawings and short stories created by children, for children, all across the World.

 

Each book is typically made up of a collection of drawings and stories from a particular group of children somewhere in the world. We, or our Colour Our Story friends, invite them to think about what they wish to share with other children around the globe. 

 

This could be something about themselves, where they're from, their hopes and dreams or something from their wild imaginations. This untamed, open space is where the magic happens!

 

We've also recently launched our special online collections which have allowed us to reach out to children everywhere and ask them to submit creative content on a particular topic such as Covid 19 and climate change. Find out more under 'Special Collections' below.

 

We'd love you to be part of our journey, be part of our story and help us share Colour Our Story across the world! Click on the 'Updates' tab above to watch the video of our latest Colour Our Story Creative Kits we're preparing right now for kids in Uganda, Sierra Leone and New Zealand.

 

 

 

- to create a safe and nurturing space for children to express themselves 

 

- provide a platform for them to share their own creations and stories with each other across borders and oceans 

 

- empower children to share their own narratives rather than those provided to them 

 

- encourage a strong sense of global citizenship, connection and empathy as they start to understand the world beyond their doorstep

 

Our impact has been far reaching. We've connected with hundreds of children and gifted hundreds of books to a wide range of organisations and charities who's values are so beautifully aligned with our own.

We've held children's creative events in NZ and overseas and travelled to orphanages and remote areas with limited opportunities. We've colloborated with friends and volunteers who have taken Colour Our Story with them and gathered content from children directly.

 

We've collaborated with charities and organisations who see the value in incorporating the Colour Our Story experience in their core mission.

 

Here are just some of those wonderful organisations:

 

OrphFund 

 

Orphund reaches out to the most vulnerable children by targeting remote and unsupported communities. They bring hope and opportunity to thousands of orphaned, abandoned and neglected children. I have personally experienced and witnessed all the incredible, absolutely life changing work that they do during my own two trips to a remote village Kasese in Uganda. This collaboration resulted in two Uganda Books and a Sierra Leone Book. We hope there will be many more!

 

Fair Nomad

 

Fairnomad are an enterprise aimed at providing education and career opportunities to the inhabitants of remote villages around the world. A beautiful friend and teacher, Jana, spent time teaching young children on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa and introduced the students to Colour Our Story. Their creations, along with others collected during my own travels around Bali, were part of our first Indonesian book. Jana's students in Prague also took part and we now have a wonderful Czech Republic book in the Colour Our Story collection.

 

Charity Tea 

 

As well as nourishing you from the inside out, Charity Tea also helps nourish children in New Zealand and overseas. Revenue from the sales of their health-promoting blends of organic tea feeds kids in need. This collaboration, with the beautiful founder and our friend, Gill, came as a result of one of her trips to Haiti a few years ago and resulted in the special Haiti Book.  Despite the enormous challenges in Haiti right now, we have high hopes of one day bringing more creative connection to the children she so lovingly supports.

 

I Got Your Back Pack 

 

IGYBP provides emergency care packs filled with practical and essential items to women and children surviving domestic violence in refuges nationwide. Founder of this inspiring vision, Anita, is a dear friend and it’s been such a privilege to be part of her story.  Our global colouring-in books have been included lovingly in children's packs for vulnerable children throughout New Zealand. In the future we have big dreams to provide those children with opportunities to become artists and storytellers in their own Colour Our Story books.

 

The Smile Initiative 

 

This was our most recent collaboration and such a meaningful opportunity! It's a validation of all that we are and all that we do.  The Smile Initiative is a social enterprise created to shake things up within mental health in Aotearoa. They have created mental health kits to support adults and children around NZ and they chose to have our global colouring-in books as a therapy tool within their children's kits. We are so excited to see where this journey with them may take us in the future!

 

 

 

 

In times like these, with so many kids staying safe at home around the world, it's ever more important for children to not feel alone, to connect, to share and to feel heard. 

 

So we launched our global  ‘Home Together’ online gallery space earlier this year. We invited children to share a drawing and short story they've created with other kids and families wherever they may be and made them available as a free downloadable collection.

 

These wonderful stories and drawings will soon be available in schools, preschools, cafes, libraries, holiday events and more. If you would like them in your space please get in touch.

 

 

 

Our next exciting online gallery space that we plan on launching in the new year is 'Save Our World'. We already have over 100 drawings and stories and expect to have a global library of thousands of free downloadable printouts that could help children feel empowered, heard and inspired.

 

With these creations we also hope to create some powerful partnerships and collaborations with others doing incredible things to help save our world.

 

We are also commited to doing our part when it comes to reducing our environmental impact which is why we have chosen our printing partner Pinc Inc for our books and cards. Find out more about their environmental efforts here - Pinc and the Environment.

 

 

 

 

This journey takes a village and the more that village grows, the more impact we can have and the richer our impact becomes. Since Colour Our Story began, wonderful humans from around the world have come on board: volunteers, bookmakers, teachers, parents, artists, creatives, photographers, fellow travellers, carers, partners, supporters and collaborators. Aside from the children, the beautiful connections that have been created between like-minded souls from so many different places, backgrounds and experiences is one of the best parts of this initiative that fills me with so much love and hope for humanity!

 

We will be sharing some of their stories throughout the campaign so keep a look out.

 

 

the village

 

 

 

We're passionate about Colour Our Story and hope to see it in every continent, country, city, and village around the world. To make this happen we need some help. But we don't need a hand-out, just a hand up and simply pre-ordering any of the rewards we have on offer will help us tremendously. Product based rewards are available within New Zealand only. If you are overseas please visit our online store at Colour Our Story. Our card packs will be available there soon.

 

The funds raised will help in the following ways:

 

- Bulk buying Book and Card paper stock to create the books and cards

- Reducing printing costs by having bigger print runs

- Sourcing printer relationships in our partner countries to have locally printed books

- Purchasing of art supplies for our creative kits we gift to Colour Our Story children around the world

 

 

 

I'm a creative and a nomad who was born and raised in Zimbabwe. I've lived in NZ for over 20 years and Colour Our Story is my WHY. I just can't imagine my life without it now. 

 

Our goal is to get Colour Our Story to a point of being self-sustaining by generating enough funds to do everything we currently do and much more. With enough funds generated through sales of our books and cards, we'd be able to gift Colour Our Story creative kits (filled with our global book collection, A4 print-outs and art supplies) to many more organisations around the world. Click on the 'Updates' tab above to watch the video of our latest kits we're preparing right now for kids in Uganda, Sierra Leone and New Zealand.

 

Beyond this we would love to connect with more creatives and art therapists, travelling or living locally, who could help us gift even more creative opportunities and therapies where they are most needed.  Instead of reaching hundreds of kids, we hope to reach thousands and we believe we can!

 

 

 

 

TO YOU  

Thank you for supporting us, believing in us and joining us on this exciting journey so that together we're able to impact positively on so many more young lives around the world!

 

TO OUR VILLAGE  

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has been involved in creating the magic. From the teachers, the parents, the book makers, the advisors, the event helpers, fellow travellers and creatives... the list goes on. This would not be possible without you!

 

GIVERS OF OUR AMAZING DONATED REWARDS

Yesterday I spent quite some time at the post shop sending out the first round of your rewards so I hope you'll be finding them in your letterboxes very soon.

We're just waiting for the rest of your payments to go through successfully and then I'll be sending those out immediately so please double check there's nothing you need to do on your end.

I hope you'll love our books and cards as much as we do and remember, sending photos through to us or tagging us on facebook or instagram means we can show the original artists and storytellers around the world their beautiful creations filled with colour! :) This means so much to them and it's a beautiful way for children (and adults) everywhere to connect through creativity.

I do appologise for this update coming a day late but there has just been so much to celebrate and so much to do!!!

Over the weekend I turned 40 and celebrated in the beautiful sunshine with friends and family here in Auckland, New Zealand. It was a gathering that took me completely by surprise and blew me away.

My fiance Jonathan and I also took the opportunity to make a suprise announcement that he had just received news of being granted residency in New Zealand - which is just the best news!! And of course we were able to celebrate the fact that this campaign surpassed it's goal early!! So with so many incredible things to celebrate, after what has been such a challenging year, I was absolutely feeling the love and such an overwhelming sense of gratitude!

Today I'll be spending some time at the post office sending off some of these rewards to you, our increidble supporters of Colour Our Story. I'll also be posting updates very soon about all the super exciting things we will get to do very soon with all these funds raised.

So I just wanted to quickly send out the hugest mountain of love and gratitude to all you beautiful pledgers and donors of gorgeous gifts!!!

Magical things like this don't just happen. It takes a village and you are now part of our special village, part of our story and part of our global journey.

So please follow us on facebook and instagram and watch as our Colour Our Story creative gifts make it to children around New Zealand and the world.

Wishing you a beautiful, colourful festive season,

love Michelle and the Colour Our Story team xox

 

Thank you!!

Thank you so much for all your loving support so far. It means the world!!

Our latest mission is getting our Colour Our Story creative kits to our young artists and authors living in OrphFund children's homes in remote Uganda and Sierra Leone. They will be filled with our beautiful colouring in books made by children, for children, all around the world, as well as art supplies.

 

Aroha,

Michelle xx

    I'm Michelle, Founder of a global, creative initiative Colour Our Story. Colour Our Story facilitates the creation of colouring-in books and colouring-in greeting cards filled with beautiful and unique drawings and short stories created by children, for children, all across the World.

     

    Each book is typically made up of a collection of drawings and stories from a particular group of children somewhere in the world. We, or our Colour Our Story friends, invite them to think about what they wish to share with other children around the globe. 

     

    This could be something about themselves, where they're from, their hopes and dreams or something from their wild imaginations. This untamed, open space is where the magic happens!

     

    We've also recently launched our special online collections which have allowed us to reach out to children everywhere and ask them to submit creative content on a particular topic such as Covid 19 and climate change. Find out more under 'Special Collections' below.

     

    We'd love you to be part of our journey, be part of our story and help us share Colour Our Story across the world! Click on the 'Updates' tab above to watch the video of our latest Colour Our Story Creative Kits we're preparing right now for kids in Uganda, Sierra Leone and New Zealand.

     

     

     

    - to create a safe and nurturing space for children to express themselves 

     

    - provide a platform for them to share their own creations and stories with each other across borders and oceans 

     

    - empower children to share their own narratives rather than those provided to them 

     

    - encourage a strong sense of global citizenship, connection and empathy as they start to understand the world beyond their doorstep

     

    Our impact has been far reaching. We've connected with hundreds of children and gifted hundreds of books to a wide range of organisations and charities who's values are so beautifully aligned with our own.

    We've collaborated with charities and organisations who see the value in incorporating the Colour Our Story experience in their core mission.

I have personally experienced and witnessed all the incredible, absolutely life changing work that they do during my own two trips to a remote village Kasese in Uganda.

Their creations, along with others collected during my own travels around Bali, were part of our first Indonesian book. Jana's students in Prague also took part and we now have a wonderful Czech Republic book in the Colour Our Story collection.

     

    Charity Tea 

     

    As well as nourishing you from the inside out, Charity Tea also helps nourish children in New Zealand and overseas. Revenue from the sales of their health-promoting blends of organic tea feeds kids in need. This collaboration, with the beautiful founder and our friend, Gill, came as a result of one of her trips to Haiti a few years ago and resulted in the special Haiti Book.  Despite the enormous challenges in Haiti right now, we have high hopes of one day bringing more creative connection to the children she so lovingly supports.

     

    I Got Your Back Pack 

     

    IGYBP provides emergency care packs filled with practical and essential items to women and children surviving domestic violence in refuges nationwide. Founder of this inspiring vision, Anita, is a dear friend and it’s been such a privilege to be part of her story.  Our global colouring-in books have been included lovingly in children's packs for vulnerable children throughout New Zealand. In the future we have big dreams to provide those children with opportunities to become artists and storytellers in their own Colour Our Story books.

     

    The Smile Initiative 

     

    This was our most recent collaboration and such a meaningful opportunity! It's a validation of all that we are and all that we do.  The Smile Initiative is a social enterprise created to shake things up within mental health in Aotearoa. They have created mental health kits to support adults and children around NZ and they chose to have our global colouring-in books as a therapy tool within their children's kits. We are so excited to see where this journey with them may take us in the future!

     

     

     

     

    In times like these, with so many kids staying safe at home around the world, it's ever more important for children to not feel alone, to connect, to share and to feel heard. 

     

    So we launched our global  ‘Home Together’ online gallery space earlier this year. We invited children to share a drawing and short story they've created with other kids and families wherever they may be and made them available as a free downloadable collection.

     

    These wonderful stories and drawings will soon be available in schools, preschools, cafes, libraries, holiday events and more. If you would like them in your space please get in touch.

     

     

     

    Our next exciting online gallery space that we plan on launching in the new year is 'Save Our World'. We already have over 100 drawings and stories and expect to have a global library of thousands of free downloadable printouts that could help children feel empowered, heard and inspired.

     

    With these creations we also hope to create some powerful partnerships and collaborations with others doing incredible things to help save our world.

     

    We are also commited to doing our part when it comes to reducing our environmental impact which is why we have chosen our printing partner Pinc Inc for our books and cards. Find out more about their environmental efforts here - Pinc and the Environment.

     

     

     

     

    This journey takes a village and the more that village grows, the more impact we can have and the richer our impact becomes. Since Colour Our Story began, wonderful humans from around the world have come on board: volunteers, bookmakers, teachers, parents, artists, creatives, photographers, fellow travellers, carers, partners, supporters and collaborators. Aside from the children, the beautiful connections that have been created between like-minded souls from so many different places, backgrounds and experiences is one of the best parts of this initiative that fills me with so much love and hope for humanity!

     

    We will be sharing some of their stories throughout the campaign so keep a look out.

     

     

    the village

     

     

     

    We're passionate about Colour Our Story and hope to see it in every continent, country, city, and village around the world. To make this happen we need some help. But we don't need a hand-out, just a hand up and simply pre-ordering any of the rewards we have on offer will help us tremendously. Product based rewards are available within New Zealand only. If you are overseas please visit our online store at Colour Our Story. Our card packs will be available there soon.

     

    The funds raised will help in the following ways:

     

    - Bulk buying Book and Card paper stock to create the books and cards

    - Reducing printing costs by having bigger print runs

    - Sourcing printer relationships in our partner countries to have locally printed books

    - Purchasing of art supplies for our creative kits we gift to Colour Our Story children around the world

     

     

     

    I'm a creative and a nomad who was born and raised in Zimbabwe. I've lived in NZ for over 20 years and Colour Our Story is my WHY. I just can't imagine my life without it now. 

     

    Our goal is to get Colour Our Story to a point of being self-sustaining by generating enough funds to do everything we currently do and much more. With enough funds generated through sales of our books and cards, we'd be able to gift Colour Our Story creative kits (filled with our global book collection, A4 print-outs and art supplies) to many more organisations around the world. Click on the 'Updates' tab above to watch the video of our latest kits we're preparing right now for kids in Uganda, Sierra Leone and New Zealand.

     

    Beyond this we would love to connect with more creatives and art therapists, travelling or living locally, who could help us gift even more creative opportunities and therapies where they are most needed.  Instead of reaching hundreds of kids, we hope to reach thousands and we believe we can!

     

     

     

     

    TO YOU  

    Thank you for supporting us, believing in us and joining us on this exciting journey so that together we're able to impact positively on so many more young lives around the world!

    Magical things like this don't just happen. It takes a village and you are now part of our special village, part of our story and part of our global journey.

    So please follow us on facebook and instagram and watch as our Colour Our Story creative gifts make it to children around New Zealand and the world.

    Wishing you a beautiful, colourful festive season,

    love Michelle and the Colour Our Story team xox

     

    Thank you!!

    Thank you so much for all your loving support so far. It means the world!!

    Our latest mission is getting our Colour Our Story creative kits to our young artists and authors living in OrphFund children's homes in remote Uganda and Sierra Leone. They will be filled with our beautiful colouring in books made by children, for children, all around the world, as well as art supplies.

     

    Aroha,

    Michelle xx
