CLEVELAND, OHIO (December 09, 2019) – Proforma Affiliate Owner and Multi-Million Dollar Club member, Bethany Brevard published her first children’s book in September on Amazon Kindle, The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale. Once just a bed-time story for her children over 15 years ago The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale follows the mission of a mouse who helps prepare for Christmas and Santa’s arrival. The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale is something special to Bethany that helps spread the message of how someone as little as a mouse can make an enormous impact in the lives of others.
Bethany added a section at the end of the book to teach the children how they have made a BIG impact on two very special organizations by purchasing The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale. One organization the book benefits is a Fair-Trade factory in Nepal where women help make the beautifully handmade mice and hammocks for fair wages, education and health care for themselves and their children. The other organization is the Maison des Enfant de Dieu orphanage in Haiti where a portion of the book sales go to supporting 60 orphan’s lives.
After self-publishing on Amazon Kindle this September, receiving her handmade mice in the hammock ornaments in October and having the box sets delivered the day before Thanksgiving, the response surrounding the book has been astonishing. The Mouse in the Hammock, A Christmas Tale has sold thousands of copies and raised over $1,000 for the Maison des Enfant de Dieu orphanage.
“The response has been amazing from grandparents, parents and teachers alike! We’re starting to see our little mouse take off on social media in a viral way – where people are posting pictures of their children and mice doing small acts of kindness this holiday season. It’s been truly amazing to see what a little mouse can do and it reinforces the moral of the story: you don’t have to be big to do good, even someone as little as a mouse can make a big difference,” said Bethany Brevard, Owner of Proforma Professional Business Solutions.
With this book gaining immense popularity, Bethany’s mission is to raise over $10,000 for the Maison des Enfant de Dieu orphanage. The book comes in a variety of options. A box gift set version that includes the plush mouse in the hammock ornament, a keepsake box to store the mouse in the hammock and a hardback version of the book. There is also a paperback version that comes with the plush mouse in the hammock ornament.
