Santino Fontana, a Richland High School graduate who voices Prince Hans in the Disney movie Frozen, recently released a video supporting a children’s book crowdfunding project by local author, Judy Folk.
Folk is using the popular Kickstarter platform to help fund the publishing of her latest children’s book, Halley’s Halo.
The book tells the story of a show poodle named Halley, who becomes sick with cancer. Halley’s friend’s rally to give her comfort and support when her treatment leads to hair loss and to help her to understand that her worth does not come from her looks but from what is inside. The story demonstrates the power of love and friendship and how “doing something wonderful” for someone can be contagious.
To reach her goal, Folk must raise $25,000 by Oct. 16. Pledges are risk-free. If the project is not fully funded by the deadline, the project will receive no money.
In his video, available at www.vimeo.com/107815170, Fontana invites viewers to “do something wonderful” by contributing to the Halley’s Halo Kickstarter campaign.
