Who Are We and What We Do
Empathy Books is a new Australian book distributor. Founded in August 2014, our vision is to instil resilience in readers, to have a never-give-up attitude in times of diversity and to help others who are less fortunate. We do this through donations to caring and empathetic organizations throughout Australia like schools, hospitals and charities that strive to make a profound, positive difference to people.
We are proud to be the Australian book distributor for Bucket Fillers, Inc., whose mission is to create bucketfilling schools, families, workplaces, and communities. The concept of bucket filling represents your mental and emotional self. When your bucket is full, you feel more confident, secure, calm, patient, and friendly. Your thoughts are positive and you expect positive results. When your bucket is empty, it contains few, if any, positive thoughts or feelings. When your bucket is empty you can easily become sad, negative, insecure, nervous, angry, depressed, stressed, worried, afraid, or physically ill.
Bucket filling is easily understood by the youngest of children, and helps them understand the importance of consideration and love, particularly towards those who bully. The Bucket Filling books provide guidance in the concept of giving, respecting and promoting a cohesive environment where kids learn from other students. These concepts are already encouraged in schools but we would like to reinforce these objectives in a fun, creative and endearing way. This is done with pictures and words that make it easy to understand the values of bucket filling.
