BENEFITING: FOUNDATION FOR ANTARCTIC RESEARCH

ORGANIZER: Sandra

THE STORY:

Illustration: Courtesy of Bill Bolton - "I Can't Fly"

Check out Bill's Web Site! http://www.kids-ebooks.co.uk/

"I CAN'T FLY" - a new Children's e-book by award winning UK illustrator, Bill Bolton and writer Mark Shaw. When Bill sent me the illustrations & text I thought it was absolutely wonderful. And, even I learned a thing or two about the Albatross. It reminded me of the first time I saw the Wandering Albatrosses nesting on South Georgia Island in the sub-antarctic. It's overwhelming. As our headlines say, long line fishing has taken a terrible toll on these birds. TERRIBLE. When Bill Bolton saw a colony while visiting Otago Peninsula in New Zealand - he was inspired - enough to go home and tell the tale through an interactive, animated children's e-book about a fledgling Albatross and his quest to fly. I suspect Bill is a hopeless romantic and a love story evolves. As if this weren't enough Bill and Mark have donated 10% of their proceeds to the SAVE THE ALBATROSS FUND. So, I'm thinking "WE WANT IN" - Let our Foundation help get the word out to young people everywhere about how extraordinary the Albatross is - and what a world of danger they are in today. Education begins with our children - the Foundation will be offering wonderful illustrations from this book to our Crowdrise Friends for special donations to the Albatrosses. Expect to see a lot of Vernon and his main squeeze, Eulalia - they can get places FAST - An Albie is known to travel up to 2,630 miles in one day. Pretty impressive. So, get your wallet ready - and own a signed illustration by Bill Bolton of Vernon & Eulalia! We'll be posting the illustrations in the next few weeks. Don't miss the opportunity to get the e-book - in fact BUY IT NOW. But, the illustrations are very limited. Keep your eyes open and look for Vernon & Eulalia - They are the Largest Seabird in the World - and they have a wing span of up to 12 feet - You can't miss them!
