Proceeds from Danny the Dragon CD Support Good Cause

If you’ve been keeping up with me as the children’s author of the Danny the Dragon series, you’ve probably heard me talk about the new Danny the Dragon CD, which is soon to be released, containing a reading of Danny Meets Jimmy by a talented vocal artist followed by a compilation of ten original classic songs by up-and-coming composers. What’s great about the CD is that, as with the book, it can be enjoyed by people of all ages—the young and the young at heart. What’s even better, though, is the fact that the proceeds are going to a cause which is near and dear to my heart in my research and humanitarian efforts, a cause that you may not know much about—raising celiac disease awareness.

Misdiagnosing Has to Stop

Aside from my role as a children’s author, many of you are also aware that I am an avid supporter of Celiac Disease Research and that I am very involved in a major project to gain government support for the only auto-immune disease which the government does not support. Why? Because the drug companies and pharmacies do not make money off of this disease because the simple solution is to abstain from the gluten in their diet.

sesame_street_friends

Wow, it’s hard to believe that Sesame Street has really been around for 40 years!  There aren’t very many children’s brands/themes that are able to withstand the progression of the generations, but looks like Sesame Street has indeed passed the test.
