Hi, my name is Isabelle Mary Fitzgerald. I am the founder of MY PEACEFUL UNIVERSE an organisation that teaches MIndfulness and Meditation to Children. I am also a Mum of two divine Children aged 8 and 11.
I’m sure like many parents and families joining this Crowdfunding Campaign you are extremely concerned about the mental health and wellbeing of our beautiful children. As we speak 1 in 7 children suffer from a mental health issue. That is over half a million Australian children in any given year alone. What is truly alarming, 50% of mental health issues are now emerging between the ages of 4 and 14!
So many parents are asking me, what can we do? How can we reverse these worrying trends?

Support our Mindfulness and Meditation Crowdfunding Campaign.
As an organisation, we do have big goals. It is our mission in 2018 to make Mindfulness and Meditation accessible to 1000's of parents, families and children across Australian and in communities and around the globe.
We aim to do this in three simple ways.
1. Finish recording and producing one years worth of Guided Meditations for Children and Families to stream online:
Since making my Guided Meditations available to stream online we have reached over 35'000 listeners, providing peace calm and relaxation to parents, families and children all across the globe. The feedback from parents has been overwhelming and has brought me so much joy.
"Hi, Isabelle. We hope you're well. I would like to thank you for sharing your beautiful meditations and positive affirmations. Our children who are 8, 6, 5 and 11 months old, love them. We listen to them every night and have made them a part of our bedtime routines. My partner and I have begun using your words think positive, feel positive, which has lead to such positive actions and feelings in our family. We have seen a great change in our children's behaviour and outlook on life, and how they treat each other as well as others around. And, to be totally honest, your meditations are having a such a positive impact on us adults too. So I would just like to say THANK YOU. May you have a peaceful and harmonious day"-

With your help, I aim to record and produce 32, one years worth, of Guided Meditations for Children so my meditations can continue to provide relief for families in 2018. You can stream my meditations online by clicking here.
I am so passionate about continuing this work, every family that contributes $100 or more to our campaign will receive a digital copy of my third album currently in production, a gift that includes 8 wonderful Guided Meditations for Children.
2. Personally, train and mentor 100 amazing facilitators in 2018.
It is my goal to personally train and mentor 100 incredible facilitators to introduce and teach my Mindfulness and Meditation classes to 1000+ children in communities across Australia and around the world.
I also aim to provide support to our facilitators with our website, so that parents and families can find our facilitators in their community and enrol their children into Mindfulness and Meditation Classes quickly and easily.
If you are looking for an amazing opportunity to teach children how to manage their emotions, academic pressure, social media, stress and worry? Contribute $2000 to our campaign and you can attend our Facilitator Training Course. SYDNEY, MELBOURNE and BRISBANE. 2018 dates to be announced.

3. Develop a fun and easy to use Mindfulness and Meditation TEACHERS PORTAL.
Schools across Australia and worldwide are turning to Mindfulness and Meditation as research now shows mindfulness and meditation have amazing benefits for both teachers and students.
It is my goal to make my Guided Meditations, Breathing Exercises and Mindfulness Resources accessible in the classroom by developing an ONLINE TEACHERS PORTAL. So that resources can be easily accessed by teachers and primary school students anytime during the school week and utilised throughout each term.
You can learn more about our MY PEACEFUL SCHOOLS PROGRAM and view our TEACHERS PORTAL currently in its early development stage by clicking here.
For this crowdfunding campaign, we need to raise $60'000, which is conservative compared to the magnitude of the problem. But, with your help, I believe we can achieve our 3 simple, but vitalgoals in 2018, and truly have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of our children both here in Australia, and around the globe.

Why Mindfulness and Meditation?
Mindfulness and Meditation have now emerged as a fun and positive way to help children face a range of mental and emotional challenges in their young lives.
Research now shows that 8 weeks of Mindfulness and Meditation practice can help rewire our brains for happiness, and help cultivate joy in children.
Since starting my classes just this year I have been truly blessed to see first hand the positive effect Mindfulness and Meditation can have on a child's outlook on life.
In my classes, children learn how to still their minds and breath properly so they can manage sleep, stress and anxiety when it arises.
They also learn positive tools that help build confidence, resilience and self-awareness, as well as learn how to develop kindness and, compassion towards themselves and others around them.
Most of all THANK YOU for your support and investing in our children in this way. Together let's help every child learn the "life skill' of Mindfulness and Meditation.
