Sunflower Bridge puts the human back in humanitarian by teaching children how to turn life’s challenges into advantages through storytelling



We provide educational workshops to children in need


The children create storybooks about how to turn those challenges into advantages


We publish the books and share their message with the world


Use your art to heal. We're looking for young artists to illustrate our kids' book.

Help us illustrate our book Free to Be, the amazing children's story of how Sunny the Sunflower overcame his PTSD after a bad storm. All young artists (ages 3-18) in Santa Barbara or Ventura County are encouraged to apply! Featured artists receive a free copy of the finished book and the satisfaction of using their art to strengthen and educate the minds of children.

Our biggest challenges in life become big lessons and with the right mindset, big advantages. The children we work with have faced greater challenges than most and this can be terrifying to them. Sunflower Bridge wants to turn that fear into freedom.
— Lisa Biggs, Founder

Sunflower Bridge wants people who love people.


Whether you're an orphanage, school, hospital, clean water provider, or a humanitarian nonprofit — if you're working to better the lives and futures of the children, Sunflower Bridge wants to partner with you.

We'll visit your organization or event and run storytelling workshops with your children, then use that content to create amazing educational books which will be read all over the world. Proceeds from the sale of the books will go to fund your group.
