Our Fundraising Book Project

About the Book.

 Balloons To Heaven is an interactive colouring storybook series that tells the story of one family’s tradition to remember and honour the life of a very special little boy, Julian Klassen.  Several times each year on special occasions, Julian’s family and friends gather together to write messages on balloons, and then send them to him in Heaven.


Read along as Julian’s younger sister, Ava Klassen describes the balloons’ travels as they make their way to Julian in Heaven, carrying messages of love from the people who's lives he touched with his laughter and courage.  Colour the beautiful illustrations, lovingly created by author and illustrator, Carey Rigby-Wilcox, who is also Julian’s cousin.

From Victoria, to Saskatoon, to Ottawa, brightly coloured balloons adorned with messages of love are released by Julian’s family, friends, classmates.  The balloons are carried by the wind, over the trees and past airplanes, to all four corners of the world, and all the way to Heaven where Julian smiles and watches over all of the people who miss him every day.


Proceeds from the purchase of all Balloons To Heaven colouring storybooks are to be donated to Children’s Wish Foundation in support of their dedication to enrich and enhance the lives of sick kids everywhere.  Together, Ava and Carey hope to spread inspiration and comfort to other families affected by life threatening illness.
