This is Princess Planet’s inaugural GoFundMe Campaign.
Princess Planet is a new brand of children’s entertainment. Please help to promote princess characters with diverse hair textures, skin tones, and cultural backgrounds.
This GoFundMe Campaign is essential for Princess Planet to introduce and produce products such as: picture books, coloring books, clothing, computer applications, toys, etc. Future possibilities for Princess Planet products are endless. Princess Planet has raised over 30% of the goal but need to continue to spread the word in order for Princess Planet to change the market place!
The holiday season is rapidly approaching.
“I have three daughters; at one time or another in each of their lives they fell in love with princess characters through mediums such as books, games, toys, animations, and/or accessories. However, it’s difficult to find content they can directly relate too. My two younger daughters, ages 9 and 10, appreciate characters that remind them of themselves, friends, family, or everyday women in their lives. When they have access to diverse content their play becomes more realistic and their dialogue reflects issues and/or moments from their personal lives."
-Gregory McClellan, Father and Fan

The current market place doesn’t do enough to bring culturally diverse characters to consumers. Supporting causes like this is one way the market will change to included authentic, culturally diverse characters.
Parents of many cultures, ethnicities, and demographics have faced the challenges of providing content to their children that accurately represents cultural and ethnic diversity. It is equally important that children learn at an early age about cultures in order to promote acceptance, tolerance, and exploration. In the realm of princess products much work is needed to level the playing field. Princess Planet’s products are highly impactful and long overdue. Princess Planet is also a great way to learn about science, geography, diverse languages, and history.
The future depends on the values, morals, inner-pride, and respect that are instilled in children. All children deserve content that celebrates diversity and negates stereotypes that hinder children’s development.
“Any parent with a daughter can relate to the trouble of finding children’s content that will provide them with “true” cultural diversity. I started Princess Planet so our daughters can see themselves, their friends, and their classmates as princesses.”
-CEO of Princess Planet, Israel Cook
This campaign will tell if the public supports Princess Planet's cause to ensure that children have culturally diverse, positive content in toys and materials. Without the support of the masses the market place will remain unchanged. It’s easy to complain about the lack of diversity and authenticity in children’s products and pass the buck with the hope that some company will focus on all children’s positive development. It’s harder, but far more rewarding to be a part of the solution. This campaign ends on November, 22nd. With support Princess Planet can change the market. The time for change is now!
