I have teamed up with artists at the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre to paint rocks with inspirational words that come from all the different faeries key messages in my Award-Winning book, The ABC Field Guide to Faeries. The goal of this project is to change the stigma and face of homelessness.

Here is a link to the video that I did from the launch that introduces the artists and some of the people who chose rocks:
