THE RICHEST GIRL IN THE WORLD
On Christmas Day 2020, Angela released her children's book as a videobook, about the indwelling nature of friendship. When a sage old man arrives in an enchanting village, he changes the life of a little girl forever, who changes his right back. Featuring over a hundred color illustrations, and underscored with music by composer Chris Hardin, THE RICHEST GIRL IN THE WORLD sets the stage for an idyllic and timeless story, where gratitude, compassion, and being present are everyday virtues. It's KidLit for a risen consciousness. And with references to Van Gogh, Banksy, and Edvard Munch, THE RICHEST GIRL IN THE WORLD is for kids ages 8 to 108! WATCH HERE

For 30 years, RS has worked to level the playing field for neighbors who have faced social, racial, and economic discrimination and disinvestment. RS addresses community needs for affordable food access; a safe place to gather to combat social isolation and increase community engagement; and increased access to social and mental health services that lead to improved health and self-sufficiency. 50% of each artwork sold will go to RS with the remaining 50% going directly to the artists.
