Team Kramer, apparently the most adorable family in the country, made waves in social media and television recently and is now utilizing their popularity to support children’s causes.
Team Kramer, in collaboration with Sterling Books, brings you Team Kramer Values and Healthy Habits, a series of children’s story books all written by Cheska Garcia-Kramer and edited by Cristelle Mariano. Proceeds of these books will go to Children’s Hour Philippines Foundation’s projects to help Filipino children in need, primarily by building libraries and reading corners in public schools nationwide.
Published by Sterling Paper, the six books contain lessons, values, and healthy habits taught by the Kramers to their own children at home. Cheska adds that these books are “written from the heart” and are culled from their personal experiences. It is also penned witth the help of her husband Doug and kids, Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin.
Cheska has always loved writing poetry as a child. Coming from a broken family, she shared that it was her outlet when her parents were separating. Now that she is a mother herself, she used her creative expression to help other parents introduce important values to their kids, and to teach children the importance of keeping proper hygiene. “Through my personal experience as a mother, I was inspired to write children’s books based on the things that my kids and I would go through in our daily lives,” she explained.
As Christmas quickly rolls in, the Kramers encourage parents, teachers, and guardians alike to make these books their meaningful Christmas gift to their children. As Brand Ambassadors of Children’s Hour, the Kramers highly advocate the value of education for every Filipino child, and that access to quality education is every Filipino child’s right. They believe that education is an important aspect in creating better Filipino citizens and is an avenue where we can mold our children’s characters.
The Kramers have pledged that the proceeds of the books will be donated to Children’s Hour to support the foundation’s projects in education, health & nutrition, and child welfare and development. The proceeds will also support Children’s Hour’s initiatives in building libraries and reading corners in public schools nationwide.
“There is rampant need in providing Filipino children safe places where they can study and learn. In the Philippines, 85% of our public schools have no functioning libraries,” explains Ms. Ovy Javier, Assistant Executive Director of Children’s Hour. “Some children have not even experienced what it is like to have reading corners, or to be in a library–where they have access to as many books as they want to read, or to even have access to well-lit spaces where they can study,” she adds. “We are thankful to Team Kramer for championing our children’s causes and for helping us build more safe learning spaces for all the children that we serve.”
Everyone who gets a copy of the Team Kramer Values and Healthy Habits boks also contribute to Children’s Hour in reaching out to more Filipino children in need.
These books are now available in all National Book Store branches nationwide at very affordable prices.
