Motivating Kids Through

Tom’s Talks

Toms Talks

We visit some of the most underserved communities, where school supplies and mental health services are often scarce, and we share Tom’s inspiring story of overcoming adversity.

We provide the classrooms we visit with copies of our books, discussion guides that accompany them to encourage an open dialect amongst the students, and an activity books to promote creativity.
