Local marketing professional and Scottsdale mother of two Erin Stremcha will release her first affirmation book, “Power Up,” starting Thursday, April 29.
The book highlights 29 pep talks to motivate and encourage children of all ages. To celebrate the launch, Ms. Stremcha is offering a “Buy a Book, Donate a Book” program. Each time someone purchases a “Power Up” book, a child in the community benefits, according to a press release.
“For every book purchased, we are going to donate a book (both digital and hard copies) towards charities supporting foster and abused children,” said Ms. Stremcha in a prepared statement. “By purchasing this book, you are helping equip children who otherwise may not have the family support they need to feel loved, supported and valued.”
According to the Arizona Department of Child Safety, there are more than 19,000 children in foster care in Arizona, the release said, describing how Ms. Stremcha wants to make a positive difference for those children with her book and donation program.
Inspired to write the book by her two sons, who she originally gave the book to, the release noted her passion for mentoring youths to achieve their dreams, raise their self-confidence also helped her recognize her goal in life, which is to help make a positive impact on children in Arizona and worldwide.
“I recently thought to myself, there’s never been a better time in the world to give back to causes you feel strongly about. That is why my goal is to help all 19,000 Arizona foster children feel loved, supported and gain self-esteem,” Ms. Stremcha said.
“I have published a book that affirms children and helps to unlock that power within them and be inspired by the most powerful voice in the world – their own!”
“Power Up,” which is illustrated by Nicco Fritch, will be available on Amazon in print ($15.99) and eBook ($2.99) formats on April 29.
