‘New Wings for Baatar’
A novel for children and adults to the benefit of the non-profit organziation wünschdirwas e.V. (Cologne, Germany)
wünschdirwas e.V.—comparable to the American Make-A-Wish foundation—helps since 25 years children suffering from long and life threatening diseases to make their wishes come true.
Haike Falkenberg’s tells with ‘New Wings for Baatar’ a thrilling story about the power of wishes and encourages readers to find their own true wish or to help others to make their dream come true.
The book appeals to children from primary school and adults. And with your help it will come true!
Thank you for supporting the publication of the book by crowdfunding: http://www.startnext.de/en/wuenschdirwas-kinderbuch
The manuscript of the story is already finished. The collected money will serve at first to illustrate the book, because images are important in a children’s book.
wünschdirwas e.V. shall get at least 30 books in order to pass them on to sick children and hospitals, when volunteers of the association visit young patients and introduce them to the possibilities of wish-fulfilment. Furthermore, it would be wonderful to translate the book into English and French and help promoting the work of similar organizations all over the world.
Further printed books, an e-book version and bookmarks/thank-you-cards will be manufactured and shipped as a thank you to all supporters.
