As a writer of code

Joel’s mother passed away in February 2017. Joel and his brother Mitch wanted to do something unique with her life insurance money.
Mitch is a Doctor, and Joel makes apps.
The month his mom passed, Joel found out that he is going to be a Dad!
He went to Target to buy some children’s books. Shelves contained children’s books about Penguins with Hiccups and Dragons that eat Tacos.
Where is the smart stuff?
Mitch and Joel decided to use the money to form BeasleyFoundation.org to design STEM-related children’s books and give 10k books away to orphanages, homeless pregnant women, and in-need children.
