Education Fund

You are responsible for being more ethicalIMG_7641.png


Purposeful education and outreach worldwide through technology(online) in person and through children's television and our other venues!
The specific purpose of our nonprofit is to provide education, training, and opportunity to learn about social and ecological justice. We model and teach equity and anti-racist, shared humanity and sustainability practices. These actions of love, empathy, peace, service, and creative play are at the heart of building and repairing communities (including OUR worldwide community) affected and impacted by a lack of understanding of human diversity. Specifically, the nonprofit will provide education & training through Online workshops, events, written composition, creative/original works of art, theater, music, television, and ultimately, the creation of an institution of higher learning as avenues of spreading the mission & vision of SissyMarySue Education Fund!


PRESERVING CHILDHOOD FOR EVERY CHILD through the vehicles of STORYTELLING & CREATIVE PLAY- which we believe preserve’s humankind & our natural world! For, where we teach, model and show empathy, kindness and love we will have manifested a powerfully, loving RIPPLE EFFECT! We call this the “EMPATHY RIPPLE!" Empowering youth with empathy to spring into compassionate action will, in turn empower the adults in their homes, schools and communities to do the same worldwide!
