Carolyn Maker is a mom, grandmother, writer, published author, inventor, ordained minister and a children’s advocate. In 2013 she moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area from Portland, Oregon. Carolyn is passionate about community service and in 2007, founded the Cinderella Program. Starting with only her desire to make a difference in society and with no funds, she single handily birthed the Cinderella Program. This was her way of giving back to the community by helping shape the future of a young girls’ life.
The Cinderella Program was a success and received accolades from then Governor Theodore R. Kulongoski, The Oregonian, Washington County Weekly News, Oregon Mentors, and several other recognitions.
In 1990, Carolyn created her invention, namely Peanuts the Lion, a lion of a different sort. Years went by before Carolyn knew the time was right to present Peanuts the Lion to the World. In October of 2016, Peanuts the Lion came forth from his den and was ready to take on the challenge of being the Mascot and taking his stance against an ever-growing menace called bullying. Carolyn through Peanuts the Lion knows this menace must stop, and it is Peanuts’ duty to call to action all those who wish to join him in educating individuals young and old, male and female around the world about the dangers of bullying.
