A few months ago, I wrote about a new kids ebook, "Mimi and Maty to the Rescue!
" that combined a fun story for kids with an amazing mission for animals — for every download of the free ebook, Freekibble.com
donated an additional meal to an animal shelter.
A great story for kids, a free ebook, and help for animals in need. That is one sweet deal — and it just got a little sweeter.
As of today, the full-color, hold-in-your-hands version of "Mimi and Maty" is now available on Amazon
. For each book sold, Freekibble.com is donating five Halo Pets meals to shelter dogs and cats at a Best Friends Network Shelter. And for the first 100 copies sold, the Freekibble Foundation will donate 100 books to schools, to inspire young readers to help animals.
"Mimi and Maty"
is based on the adventures of Mimi Ausland — the young eco-kid who founded a website to help provide food for shelter pets (freekibble.com) at age 11 — and her trusty three-legged sidekick, Maty. Written by Mimi's mom, "Mimi and Maty" is fun to read and inspirational for kids of all ages. Plus, it could make a great gift for the animal lover on your holiday list!
