Local marketing professional and mother of two Erin Stremcha is getting ready to release her first book, “Power Up” later this month. The affirmation book highlights 29 pep talks to motivate and encourage kids of all ages and will be available starting Thursday, April 29, 2021.
To celebrate the launch, Stremcha is rolling out a ‘Buy a Book, Donate a Book’ program. Each time someone purchases a “Power Up” book, a child in the community benefits.
“For every book purchased, we are going to donate a book (both digital and hard copies) towards charities supporting foster and abused children,” says Stremcha. “By purchasing this book, you are helping equip children who otherwise may not have the family support they need to feel loved, supported and valued.”
According to the Arizona Department of Child Safety, there are more than 19,000 children in foster care in Arizona. Stremcha hopes to make a positive difference for those children with her book and donation program.
Stremcha was inspired to write the book by her two sons, who she gifted the book to originally. Her passion for mentoring young people to achieve their dreams, raise their self-confidence helped her recognize that her goal in life, is to help make a positive difference for children in Arizona and worldwide.
“I recently thought to myself, there’s never been a better time in the world to give back to causes you feel strongly about. That is why my goal is to help all 19,000 Arizona foster children feel loved, supported and gain self-esteem,” says Stremcha. “I have published a book that affirms children and helps to unlock that power within them and be inspired by the most powerful voice in the world – their own!”
“Power Up,” which is illustrated by Nicco Fritch, will be available for purchase on Amazon both in print and eBook formats on April 29, 2021. The cost is $2.99 for the eBook and $15,99 for the print copy. For more information on the book, visit elstremcha.com.
