Jeffrey Erkelens is creating a Book for Boys

In 'The Boy Crisis,' authors Warren Farrell PhD, and John Gray PhD warn that now that traditional roles for men are shrinking, boys across the world are growing up in a “purpose void.”

They're also given worthless and ambiguous marching orders: 

"Just be a Man! Be a Hero!"

How are they supposed to know what that means in a world which presents them with confusing, and often toxic images of masculinity, false heroes, and false promises

Boys need our help.

Most of the world's greatest atrocities have been committed by men who suffered major trauma during childhood. Mass shootings in America are mostly perpetrated by young men who also carry deep wounds in their psyches.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men, said American statesman Frederick Douglass.

That's why I am writing 'The Hero in You' - a book for boys to guide them on their journey towards true manhood and help them define for themselves what it means to be a hero. Join the Force and support this important work!

Imagine changing the world, one little hero at a time.

Goals
$4 of $2,000 per month
Reaching this goal will allow us to focus exclusively on writing 'The Hero in You' ensuring that the book finds its way quickly onto the hands of (hopefully) every boy, everywhere. Funds will also cover the expected costs for editing, illustrating, and publishing the book.

50% of our goal must be reached by May 31, 2019. 

We expect the book to take 6-10 months to complete and 3-6 months for publication. 

Once published, our mission will be accomplished and your patronage will no longer be needed.
