SCHOOL VISITS: 2 - 8
When I visit school, I talk the path I took to become an author. I started off wanting to be a newspaper cartoonist, but over time, my goal changed to wanting to become an author who wrote books with cartoons. My hope is that kids who have a dream or ambition might take something away from my presentation, and get started down their own creative path.


Year(s) of participation: 2017

HILL-ROBERTS SCHOOL in Attleboro, MA USA


JEFF GIVES KIDS A CHOICE AT HILL-ROBERTS


>We had a successful Authors for Earth Day visit in Attleboro, MA today. We invited the local paper and they took these pictures.


I had the kids pick between four organizations that had an animal focus… the Honeybee Conservancy, the Gorilla Fund, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation organization, and Pandas International. I had the kids vote by making animal sounds. It was lots of fun.


Panda won. I'll be sending a $4,000 check to Pandas International, as well as $1,000 a piece to the other three organizations.
