Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (BlackNews.com) â€“ Writer J.A. Faulkerson is on a mission. He wants to encourageÂ responsible fathers in their quest to raise cooperative,Â competent and courageous children, and subtlyÂ remind the irresponsible ones “Real Men RaiseÂ Champions” and “Every Champion needs a Coach”.
According to information posted on the National Fatherhood Initiative website (www.fatherhood.org), 24 million children in America one out of three live without their biological father in the home. Faulkerson believes this problem can be addressed, but first more people need to know it exists.
That is why he designed a t-shirt with these bold statements on it. He is using the t-shirt to raise funds for the publication and promotion of his soon-to-be-released motivational book, Real Men Raise CHAMPIONS: Unleashing Your Inner C.O.A.C.H. Monies raised through the campaign will also increase Faulkersons capacity to share his insights with community and civic groups.
Faulkerson, best known for his debut novel Adinkrahene (available for online purchase through Amazon.com), readily admits he is far from being a master parent, even though he is the father to an 11-year-old boy.
But in Real Men Raise CHAMPIONS, he draws from his experiences as a stay-at-home dad and former educational access and opportunity professional to offer fathers tips for helping their children develop platforms for success. He also shares stories from his personal life, about how he was able to achieve success in a small town in Upper East Tennessee despite being raised in a single-parent household.
To purchase t-shirts ($20) in support of J.A. Faulkersons Real Men Raise CHAMPIONS campaign, visit www.booster.com/realmenraisechampions.
The deadline for placing orders is Saturday, February 21, 2015.
