WHERE WE WORK

WHERE WE WORK

Blue Coconut works with authors and artists who have passions for a variety of different causes and people groups

Each of our authors/artists want to serve audiences specific to their creative content, and we help make their generosity a reality by freely distributing their work straight into the hands of the people it applies to. 

We work with with causes specific to what our authors and artists are passionate about, finding new and creative ways to provide published resources – free of charge – to groups of people related to their particular mission.

WHO WE HELP

Simply put, Blue Coconut helps people help people

WHY WE DO IT

"We read to know we're not alone."
It's a quote that has been credited to many names, but the truth remains the same: we are not alone – and very few things speak that comfort like art and communication do. At Blue Coconut, we take this truth to heart by freely gifting our creative resources to other people who are not alone with us. We believe that our authors' passions – and our artists' desires – exist for a reason. We also believe that the need for help is not weakness, but human. We revel in coming alongside each of our partners to see their missions accomplished. 

HOW WE DO IT

Think of Blue Coconut as a connector. We help our authors and artists implement their advocacy in practical ways, making certain each partner's creative content – that is: a physical book or piece of art – gets into the hands of people who stand to benefit the most from it. We supply materials, handle shipments, and work to develop relationships between our partners and publishers, and the causes, organizations and people we support. 

WHAT WE VALUE

Generosity. 

Generosity. 

It has been said that it is "better to give than to receive." It makes sense, then – as an organization that gives freely – that generosity is a core and guiding principle at Blue Coconut. We strive to embody this value as a team, and our partnerships are specific to authors and artists with a desire to do the same

Connection. 

Connection. 

The essence of Blue Coconut is connection. Whether we are drawing lines from an artist to the service project she has always wanted to contribute to, or from an author to his favorite charity and the people benefitted therein, we love to connect the dots. We believe that building real, lasting relationships is an essential part of serving our authors/artists and the people and communities they are contributing to. 

Excellence.

Excellence.

All too often, people "gift" their leftovers instead of offering their best. We are committed to serving both our authors/artists and the people they care about all that we have to give. Whether it is the aesthetic caliber of a book in your hand or the quality of the work therein, we are dedicated to providing excellence in all that we do.
