“Lend Me an Artist” Social Media Challenge (#LMAA)

For Illustrators and Writers

Welcome to the Lend Me an Artist (#LMAA) challenge hosted by STARTS WITH US! This challenge was created to help us find the next illustrator for our upcoming book: I’ll Lend You My Daddy by Becky King, a book that offers support and comfort for children while their fathers are deployed for military service.
