With three children between them, Ciara and her Super Bowl-winning husband, Russell Wilson, are sharing their experience as parents in a new book.
The couple will publish a children’s picture book titled WHY NOT YOU?, on March 1, 2022.
“We know how important it is to share the gift of reading with kids at an early age,” Ciara and Russell said in a statement. “Through this book, we hope to not only encourage kids worldwide to read but also inspire them to pursue their dreams with a ‘Why Not You’ attitude. We’ve been so grateful to the team at Random House for making this project, a dream of ours, a reality.”
In 2014, the singer and the NFL star launched their Why Not You Foundation to fight “poverty through education, empowering youth to lead with a ‘Why Not You’ attitude.” The foundation supports student access to equal education opportunities, children’s health and food security initiatives. Its mission is to equip today’s youth with the skills and opportunities to become tomorrow’s leaders.
The organization’s latest campaign is raising raise funds for Seattle Therapeutics immunotherapy program, which is developing treatments for children with cancer.
