I'm raising money for Jester & Pharley Phund and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. I've included information about Jester & Pharley Phund below. The Jester & Pharley Phund's mission is to empower children facing serious challenges–both educational and medical–by sharing the universal message of hope, joy and perseverance in the award-winning children's book “The Jester Has Lost His Jingle," written and illustrated by David Saltzman before his death from cancer at 22 in 1990. We are dedicated to helping economically disadvantaged children through literacy and medical programs inspired by “The Jester's" message: “It's up to us to make a difference. It's up to us to care."© We envision all children – especially minority and low-income children – improving their lives with these programs. If inspired at an early age to enjoy reading and to understand the importance of being a contributing member of their community, children will lead more productive and responsible adult lives. Our unique literacy program gives children struggling with challenges in low-income areas the motivation and tools they need to read and succeed in later life.
