Handprint On My Heart
Handprint On My Heart is a non-profit organization established to support children’s strong mental health in order to promote healthy learning in their education. We value children, their views and well-being! We also understand how today’s societal pressures on children, and on their families, places a great amount of anxiety into their lives. We aspire to produce learning tools and educational opportunities that will help all children to thrive in their education and realize their full potential.
Do you know a child with anxiety who needs help to find peace and become more mindful through calming strategies? Do you know of a parent, teacher, counselor, or therapist who is in contact with children struggling with their mental health due to trauma or stresses in their lives? Are you looking for a way to make a needed difference in children’s lives?
We have created this resource site for all adults that help nurture children towards positive, healthy learning experiences. We have a delightful social/emotional learning (SEL) story, IMAGINE: An Inspirational Story of Calming Strategies for Children, that is relatable for children of all backgrounds who have a hard time dealing with stresses within their school life, at home, or out in their world. Simple calming strategies, along with a little imagination, helps to bring them comfort and refocus their attention to ultimately enhance their learning experiences.
All proceeds from book sales, as well as all donations from generous supporters, enable the Handprint On My Heart organization to help get more books and resources into the hands of children’s advocates. We partner with a growing number of organizations that focus on fostering the mental health of children. These groups include, but are not limited to, schools, hospitals, counseling therapist clinics, and mentoring programs. Our funds will also be used to create future resources developed to fulfill the same mission of accessible supportive services.
There are multiple ways to connect with the founder-author and her team. We are available through three social media platforms; Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You may also reach out for purchases, donations, and personal reading visits through our non-profit business e-mail. Please allow 1-2 business days for responses. We will be excited to hear from you and help you support a child/children in need!
