PRESS RELEASE –
Rescue kitten, Internet superstar and all-around badass, Lil BUB has raised more than $500,000 for animals in need. Now, Dabel Brothers Publishing and Space Goat Productions have partnered to give Lil BUB fans another reason to smile: the first-ever Lil BUB coloring book series. (Squeal!)
“With our love of cats here at Space Goat, plus the fact that the sale of every book benefits charity, this partnership was really a no-brainer,” said Shon Bury, Publisher of Space Goat Productions. “With Dabel Brothers’ reputation for producing high-quality content, we were so excited when they brought us in to team up on this project.”
The first in a series of Lil BUB coloring books will soon be available exclusively at store.lilbub.com for $15. A portion of the proceeds from every Lil BUB coloring book will be donated to charity.
“We’ve been watching Lil Bub’s videos for a couple years now and just knew we needed to figure out a way to get involved,” said Derek Ruiz, Publisher of Dabel Brothers Publishing. “The ideas keep flowing and we look forward to a long relationship with Bub and her dude. This is the perfect birthday gift for Lil Bub.”
Born with a rare bone condition that made it almost impossible to walk within the first year of her life, Lil BUB overcame her physical disabilities and turned them into a mission of love and positivity. With the help of her “dude,” Lil BUB has traveled across the country to raise awareness for homeless and special needs pets, and in 2014 the ASPCA created Lil BUB’s Big FUND to provide grants to shelters serving pets with special needs. Today Lil BUB has more than 2 million followers on Facebook and 1.5 million Instagram followers.
The 8-1/2 x 11 Lil BUB Coloring Book will feature heavy-weight, quality paper ideal for coloring with pencils, pens, crayons, markers, and paints. Visit www.dabelbrothers.com to learn more and sign up for the newsletter.
