Every school has the opportunity to register as a Community Funded school and invite parents, friends, local businesses and community organisations to sponsor one or more children to receive their very own personal copy of A for Attitude for just $10 per copy – that’s way less than the RRP.
This book has inspired and supported many thousands of children over the years (check out our testimonials) and they in turn impact others with their Can Do attitude. So by supporting this campaign, for one or more children in your local school, you will be contributing to the wellbeing of an untold number of people through the ripple effect. We thank you in advance. If you’re a Can Do parent, please invite your child’s school to sign up for this campaign to receive books in 2018.
Adopting a Can Do attitude – the Can Do campaign
40 years ago the ‘Life. Be in it.’ campaign launched on our TV sets, urging us to get up off the couch and become more active. People got out and cycled, walked, jogged, etc. But wellbeing isn’t just about exercising – there’s far more to it.
How you can be involved:
More people today are struggling emotionally, than ever before. One in seven children have anxiety and, while many receive help, plenty don’t, and are most likely to become depressed adults.
So let’s get up off that other ‘couch’. Let’s get in early – before our children need counselling – and turn around the culture of bully, pessimism, addiction and negativity that have kids missing out on realising their full potential.
They say “It takes a community to raise a child”…
WE say “It takes a positive community to raise a positive child.”
An idea whose time has come
20 years ago it was a lofty goal…a wishful dream…and now it’s becoming a reality.

Julie’s interest in the mind-body connection began during her nursing career, and grew as she witnessed her father’s optimistic management of a terminal illness, noting the role that ‘Attitude’ played in his story…
Reviews From Around The Globe
The beauty of A for Attitude is it’s generic simplicity. The principles contained in the book suit people of all ages, of any colour, creed or race, from all walks of life… because they are based upon age-old wisdom used by successful people for generations.
“…your book and cards are a great way for (our family) to interact and discuss the right way to think and believe so you can achieve.”
