The publishers of a children’s book are turning to community-funding platform Indiegogo to raise money for the second printing of Fred Eats a Pea, a book designed to introduce veganism to young children. The fact-based story written by Paula Weiner chronicles Fred’s transition from eating chicken pot pies and potato chips to enjoying a plant-based diet after his adoption into a vegan family. The Indiegogo campaign, which ends March 25, will cover costs associated with printing a second edition of the sold-out book, and will allow the publishers to donate copies of Fred Eats a Pea to schools and libraries. So far, the publishers have raised $350 of their $1,100 fundraising goal.
