“My Forever Guardian” is a conversation between kids about how to heal from the loss of a loved one or animal.
For the months of April and May, all book sale proceeds will go to families with children who have lost a loved one from Covid-19. Please support these families by ordering a book today!
Starting with the book "My Forever Guardian", we introduce the mission of social healing and tactics that we believe will help kids all over the world heal from loss. We live in a social society and through sharing with friends, we can all heal together.
The team is producing a book and video series giving each character a chance to tell their story and their experience. Everyone reacts and heals differently so we want to make sure kids see, read and feel supported with how they are feeling.
Kristina Jones is an award-winning advertising art director turned tech entrepreneur. When Kristina Jones was looking for the next tech company to build after scaling courtbuddy.com from Miami to nationwide, raising $7 Million in funding, and becoming the 14th African American woman to ever raise $1 Million for a tech startup, she started with a personal story.
When Kristina was seven she lost her father to cancer and knew one day she wanted to share her story on how she kept the connection to her dad alive. Throughout the process of writing and editing "My Forever Guardian", she landed on an idea to connect kids around the world who have experienced loss to share and heal together. The book transformed the idea of social healing into the app Guardian Lane which is run and monitored by top bereavement counselors who provide daily social activities kids can share in together creating their own social media healing network.
Kristina's work has been featured in Essence Magazine, Black Enterprise, Vanity Fair, Forbes and more.
