The project that gave birth to this non-profit is the short story materialized in an illustrated story book titled: “El Árbol o Recuento de una Vida Inanimada”. This book was created with the mission of donating its sales profit to a foster children’s home “Aldeas Infantiles SOS México” (and it was done). The writer always envisioned this story accompanied by illustrations since she enjoys that book format. At the right time, Gabriela García (SadPolka), the illustrator, and Tania Pineda, the editor and book producer, appeared, and together they created and published their first illustrated story book in hard cover. The story was written in Mexico in Spanish in 2010, illustrated in 2014 and published May 2015 under Ediciones Patoganso with a printed First (and only) Edition of 1,000 books. It made its debut at the “Independant Book Fair 2015” in Mexico City and was presented in different cities. It was sold at Mexico City bookstores FCE and Sótano.
In 2016, thanks to the support of BookBank USA, a bilingual (English-Spanish) edition with the title “The Tree or Remembrance of an Inanimate Life” was printed in 500 copies that are distributed in California. It has an average reading time of 20 minutes, and it also exists as a Spanish audiobook with the voice of the father of the author. The book shape is horizontal letter size (28 cm x 21 cm) and weighs 500 gms. The Spanish edition ISBN is 978-607-00-8890-2 and bilingual edition is ISBN: 978-607-29-0221-3.
