I’m a big believer in ‘giving back’ and helping others. I created gozobonkers.com as a an experiment for a new way of giving.
Gozo Bonkers exists to inspire, educate, spread joy and help those in need. No matter what religion, race or country you live in – everyone is welcome. Plus, any profits that I made have gone directly back to charity.
I originally created a character called Cannzu, had some merchandise made and also experimented with some illustrated cartoon prayer cards. Saints are very inspirational figures throughout history, but all the prayer cards I saw were depressing and very pious. In order to capture joy and foster connection and inclusion I created bright, fun and welcoming illustrations.
The good news is that the cartoon Saint Cards took off like wild fire and have been very popular. They have been shipped around the world and all cards are still developing // growing. I have close to 30 designs completed, and counting...
The first Gozo Boners eBook titled 'Saint Story' was created and launched in mid 2017. For more information check out the eBook all proceeds go to MMI.
In late 2017 a series of cards called Legends were created and launched as part of our fancy new App. This App was created thanks to a community crowd funding effort. As the African proverb says "Alone we run fast, but together we run far." Check out the App called Saints & Legends.

I’m hoping that the little things that I do will help to spread joy, prayer and happiness.
Plus who knows, I may just inspire others to do the same... #thinkBonkers --> gozobonkers.com
