Food Allergy CANpaign Opener: Red Sneakers for Oakley, 100 books!

Red Sneakers for Oakley has been one of my strongest advocates, and I am excited to announce that they just ordered 100 Land of Not books for their school program! Those 100 books will reach a lot of kids! It’s our biggest day by far for our CANpaign.

What’s even more exciting is that those books will be a special edition. The characters in Land of Not: Red Sneakers for Oakley special edition will be wearing red shoes throughout the book. In addition, the book will feature a foreword to parents and teachers and a special note to the kids explaining why the characters are wearing red shoes. I’ll be writing much more about the Land of Not: Red Sneakers for Oakley special edition in a future post. I’m excited.

As we enter the last few weeks of our Food Allergy school CANpaign, I want to thank those who have supported us by buying and donating a book (and 136-page online Teacher’s Guide and resources) to a school. I also want to encourage others to help. It’s $24 per school. We still have a long ways to go to meet our goal of 1,000 schools, but I’m confident our community will make it happen!

If there are any organizations or food allergy businesses who would like their own special edition to send to schools and families, email me directly jj@thelandofcan.com and we’ll make it happen.
