LuAna’s Bookshelf is an organization dedicated to helping children in developing countries access education when they otherwise may not be able to.  In 2016, Heidi-Marie backpacked the world in search of underfunded, impoverished schools that were in dire need of financial support. Once a school that fits the above-mentioned criteria was discovered, its students and Heidi immediately got to work in what has proven to be an effective and sustainable means of fundraising.

This is achieved by working directly with the students to create, publish, and ultimately market a storybook unique to the culture of the children who created it.  With profits from each copy sold donated back to the school, a sense of pride and accomplishment is instilled in the students who feel they have participated in something meaningful that benefits their school and, ultimately, their community.
