A couple of weeks ago, we posted about working as a blogger ambassador with ConAgra Foods and the Child Hunger Ends Here Campaign. Ya’ll know we are all about giving….we are thrilled to have the opportunity to spread the word about a cause that is so near and dear to our hearts.
When Jamie and I were at Blissdom (a blogger’s conference) in Nashville back in February we received a copy of the children’s book “Amy Giggles” by Coy Bowles of the Zac Brown Band on behalf of ConAgra Foods and the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign.
I loved Amy Giggles, a very real story about a little girl who was determined to change her BIG LOUD laugh after kids made fun of her. She did everything she could to conceal her laugh, yet after a while try as she might her laugh just couldn’t be contained. Before she knew it all the effort in the world was in vain, and her Big Ole laugh came barreling out along with a change of heart. No matter what she wouldn’t hold back anymore. It didn’t matter if people made fun of her. I love the last line of the book , “I like my laugh, and I’ll never hold it in again.”
So what’s the deal? How did a country music star end up writing a children’s book? I recently had the opportunity to chat with Coy over the phone and ask him personally about his book and his involvement with the ConAgra Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. It was really neat to hear his heart, and his passion for helping children. You can go here if you missed the previous post.
