ATLANTA, GA, August 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Never underestimate the will of a child. After watching a good friend work through the terror of childhood Leukemia, two local Atlanta boys went to work. Brothers, Mason (13 yrs) and Scott Arbery (11 yrs) decided to raise awareness and money for an organization that so positively affected their friends family, Blue Skies Ministries. The boys started with a school wide fundraiser, and then served as volunteers at a Blue Skies retreat. Later a simple story idea inspired Mason to write and publish a book, one that could anchor their fundraising efforts. ---
The book thoughtfully titled How the Green Monster Got His Job is about a monster that ends up working at Fenway Park. The message is focused on teaching children to embrace their special talents and gifts to help others. These amazing young men have done most of the legwork to see their vision through to a printed piece.
With a goal of sending one family on a week-long retreat in 2014, the boys have set a modest fundraising goal of $2,500. To learn more and to purchase the book visit, masonandscott.com, 100% of all profits from book sales will be donated directly to Blue Skies Ministries until their goal has been reached.
Who needs a lemonade stand when writing, publishing, and selling a book could potentially raise enough money to send a family affected by pediatric cancer on an all inclusive beach respite!
