The second volume of Amazing Miracle Stories is ready to print, yet funds are still needed to make it a go.

“This project is made to cover itself, and all proceeds are reinvested into this innovative book. Therefore, no one is making or will be making money,” says Reb Yosef Shidler, the founder of the TzaddikStory.org project. The goal is simply to provide inspiring stories for this generation’s children as a unique way to connect to Hashem and our tzaddikim.

An instant hit, the first book combines rich graphics and illustrations with a beautiful layout alongside incredible kid-friendly stories from a group of very talented writers. Stories of Tzaddikim and miracles have never been brought to life in such an animated fashion. The first volume was such an original, innovative book that it quickly became a must-have for Jewish homes across the globe. Sales have come from Australia, Israel, England, Canada, South Africa, and, of course, all over the United States.

The sequel features over 60 lively stories, connecting kids with revolutionary figures, such as Reb Adam Bal Shem Tov, Reb Shayala of Keristiya, the Rebbeim of Chabad, Reb Nachum of Chornobyl, the Arizal, Reb Shimon Bar Yochi, Reb Chaim Kanivesky, the Koliver Rebbe, the Lelover Rebbe, the Bava Sali, the Ribnitzer Rebbe, the Alshiach Hakodosh, the Ohr Hachaim Hakadosh, Toldos Yaakov Yosef, the Maggid, the Baal Shem Tov, Koshnitz Maggid, the Chozeh of Lublin, and many, many more.

Since the original’s release, we've been getting constant requests for a Volume II. It’s been in the works; however, producing books of this kind and caliber is expensive, with minimal return margins. This harsh reality keeps most publishers from taking on new projects with high-risk factors like this. With all the original images, stories, editing, and layout design, the expected total is over $40,000.

Most of that amount will be covered by the first book’s sales. This is the first time anyone has been willing to invest so much into a kids' book. Traditionally, anything even close was printed in Israel and sold in America for extra profit.

So many blessings are promised to those who recount and share stories of tzaddikim, spreading their miracles. How many more blessings may come from printing and distributing those same stories? How many more are the brachos from supporting something read by thousands of Jewish boys and girls worldwide? The campaign goal is meager, but the impact is massive. If you can’t make a large donation but still want to be a part of this project, you can preorder the book, via a small donation of $36.
