Winking Kat Tales was so excited to finish "Bayou Bug Tales" and present it to you this week. Little did we know Hurricane Ida would devastate the part of the country where this musical story is set. Since the music, culture, and natural beauty of Southeast Louisiana plays such a big role in the story, we wanted to do something to help the people there.
We decided the best way to help would be to donate $ 1 for every download of "Bayou Bug Tales" . We looked for a special non-profit that is working in the area to help the people there recover. We chose All Hands and Hearts. They not only help survivors clean up the horrible mess from the hurricane, but they stay in the area to help rebuild homes and businesses and get people's lives back on track. They are highly rated by Charity Navigator and 94% of every dollar donated goes to the mission at hand. Check out their website for more information. Our Story | All Hands and Hearts
So by enjoying the music and the story of "Bayou Bug Tales" you will also be helping the people and the region that inspired our adaptation. Watch our Facebook page and this website to see the tally each week of how much we'll be donating to All Hands. (we are hoping to reach our top donation limit of $500)
Because we get so many questions about the inspiration behind our stories & requests for study guides and backstage info, we created a new site just for that. It's 'thetalebehindthetale.com'. You'll find interesting facts, fun activities, and delicious recipes for each story. Click the link below to check it out.
