Eight-year-old Callie Chapman has written three books, Glitter the Unicorn, Glitter the Unicorn Goes to the Beachand Glitter the Unicorn Goes to the Moon. She will be a fourth grader this fall at Crestline Elementary.

Callie Chapman is the author of the popular children’s book series, “Glitter the Unicorn,” which shares the adventures of a unicorn and her best friend Ellie. Rather than spend book proceeds on herself, Chapman decided to donated proceeds from her book sales to purchase art supplies for patients at Children’s of Alabama. So far, she has donated $10,000. “Callie is a talented author with a big heart,” said Kelly Baker, coordinator of community engagement at Children’s of Alabama. “Her generous donation will provide hours of fun for our patients who use art supplies for therapeutic activities. Each week, we use approximately 4,000 crayons and 75 art canvases. Callie’s donation will bring smiles to the faces of many of our patients.” †

 

Chapman’s donation will be used by the Child Life Department at Children’s of Alabama. Child Life Specialists, pictured here with Callie, are professionally trained in understanding and meeting the unique needs of children and teens in the healthcare environment.
