Hi! I'm Carmen,

Drew's Mom!  I write & design fun character-building story cards called Kindness Kits .  Every Kit comes with an item to keep and an item to give.

I have always been in some type of advocacy role, so I have listened to some life changing speakers, and read some incredibly powerful books.  If you are a parent, relative, caretaker or work with children I want you to know about some of my favorite speakers and authors below!
