During the original March 2020 Covid lockdown, staring at a large, boring white wall and going slightly stir-crazy, my then 7yr old kids and I decided to change it up a bit. We literally drew anything that came to mind in pencil until the wall was full, and I painted over the lines in black acrylic, creating a massive one-of-a-kind mural in their playroom.
People wanted us to colour it in, and we were kinda tempted but loved the black and white look and so Boopino Colouring Posters were born!
The idea was also to help 'Be The Change' and to give back in some way and the first Children's Charity we donated to was Child Alert ECPAT NZ. When you purchase from us know that we donate to the following 3 charities and will be working with them to help raise more funds.
Thank you for your support and interest in our journey.

Child ALERT (ECPAT NZ)
We work for a world in which no child can be bought, sold, or used for sex. This includes working to end online grooming and digital exploitation, underage sex work, survival sex and domestic sex trafficking. We encourage everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand to speak up when they suspect child sexual exploitation. We have seen ordinary kiwis make an incredible difference in keeping our tamariki safe. https://www.ecpat.org.nz
