The Self-worth Initiative, LLC, was created by founder Deborah Weed when she realized that over 75% of all children have low self-esteem.  Deborah's vision is to combine entertainment with dynamic programs so that children will be eager to learn. Making empowerment fun is the core mission of the Self-worth Initiative.

The Sticky Ban Bandits was performed all over South Florida to rave reviews. Although at first glance, it was an interactive musical with rock-n-roll bandits, a rapping ant and a reggae dancing zebra, the reason that The Sticky Bun Bandits was created was to introduce young children to the concept of solutions. Because of that, it was a favorite production for schools, malls, festivals and hospitals.

 

 

The Luckiest Penny was performed in South Florida and New York. Although at first glance, it was an interactive musical about two 1943 pennies that was described like this, "The Luckiest Penny gives life, drama, comedy and unique personas to two rare copper pennies, who take us on a memorable, rollicking, hand slapping, singing and heartwarming  journey of positive self-esteem." The reason that The Luckiest Penny was created was to introduce young children to the concept of self-worth. If a penny can be worth $250,000, what are they really worth and why?
