BURRILLVILLE – Buckleupallofus Child Passenger Safety Campaign recently travelled across America thanks to a new partnership agreement with nonprofit Children Across America.
CAA Executive Director Raymond Fellows initiated the collaboration after reviewing a variety of websites that feature his child safety coloring cartoons, including NRI NOW Sunday Cartoons, events websites, car show and DJ websites, newspapers and magazines websites, police and fire departments and more.CAA recognized a new creative vehicle to reach a lot of children with messages about safety.
“We saw the unlimited educational and awareness potential with Jim’s cartoon characters and artistic talents to reach kids, here in this region, across California and on a national level, regarding the many safety concerns teachers, pediatric doctors, nurses, librarians, parents and guardians deal with on a daily basis,” said, Fellows. “Over the years, Jim has created coloring and activities formats, campaign visual displays and promotions, corporate and business branding, sponsoring and partnership opportunities, direct program messaging content and communication avenues focusing on multiple child safety initiatives most people have never even considered before.”
“We, at CAA, are very pleased that Jim has agreed to creatively assist our organization and reach many more kids and families across America about their safety within our projection scope, direction and future developments while also helping us with our very important fundraising efforts. Together, we can all make a difference in children’s lives,” Fellows said.
