Matthew Ouimet is 2 years old. He has Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1. He just received a liver/kidney transplant and is at UCSF fighting like a little warrior to receive and keep these treasured gifts. Prior to surgery, Matthew’s Mom, Kristi Wisecarver -Ouimet was driving 6 days a week from their home in Antioch, CA to UCSF (University of CA San Fransisco) for dialysis and to prep Matthew in the hopes that he would some day receive these organs. As you can imagine, bills are piling up! The Ouimet family’s other worries should not be financially based.

Independent Publisher recently ran a lovely feature, ‘Indie
Groundbreaking Publisher: Barefoot Books’, including an interview with
Barefoot Books CEO and Co-Founder Nancy Traversy and some great
coverage on our Ambassador programme:
‘As part of their mission to give back, Barefoot Books has established its
Ambassador program, which Traversy called their “social selling network
of passionate moms, teachers, grandparents,” and others who sell
Barefoot titles, receiving a portion of the profit, much like an independent
bookseller. Barefoot Books Ambassadors include any and all individuals
passionate about the power of children’s books and in building
communities, participating in charity work and benefiting those around
them while earning independently. . . . The Ambassador program also
gives the founders a chance to connect more closely with its distributors
and consumers, establishing and expanding its community of readers.
