Although we have been quiet for a while, we have been incredibly busy working on a new secret project!! We can finally let you all know that Not Just a Princess will be releasing a brand new charity book this month - with all proceeds going to Down Syndrome Ireland and Special Olympics Ireland. We are thrilled to be able to support two charities that are so close to our hearts throughout October, is Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
The book will feature our new-look Princess Jade and Special Olympian Nora. The full details of the story are still under wraps but we promise to bring you another empowering, fun and creative story. The character of Nora, who is a lifeguard as well as a Special Olympics athlete, is based on my 8-year-old second cousin, Nora. Despite Nora's family living between Hong Kong and the USA, we have remained close and have always been inspired by Nora's determination and fun-loving spirit. Jade is younger than Nora but the two love playing together with Nora's sisters. The four friends particularly love swimming.
Our Not Just a Princess charity book will be available to buy at the end of October. All of the profits raised from the sale of the book will be donated to Down Syndrome Ireland and Special Olympics Ireland. We will send on further details as soon as they are available - we cannot wait to share this story with you!
