A Cayman-themed children’s book with an anti-bullying message has raised $8,200 in donations for the Family Resource Centre over the past three years.

The latest check from the sales of “Rudolph Discovers the Cayman Islands,” which earned $2,500 in sales during the 2017 holiday period, was presented to center representatives this month. Including book sales during the 2015 and 2016 holiday seasons, a total of $8,200 has been earned for the charity.

“As my own daughters grow, the thought of children bullying other children is particularly concerning,” said book author, accountant Paul Schreiner. “I hope that these donations have been able to assist both the Family Resource Centre and the local community to try to reduce and ultimately end bullying in the Cayman Islands.”

The Family Resource Centre’s Charmaine Miller said the facility had used the funds in prior years to host its first “Stand Up Against Bullying” fair. The funds donated this year will be used to assist in this October’s event to continue to raise awareness about bullying.
