Mission Statement: Our mission is to touch the hearts of children and their communities to empower them in acts of service, kindness, and courage through the creative engagement of imaginative characters, stories, and events.
Vision Statement: The Princess Festival has a vision to establish a world-leading organization that promotes good values and life lessons in fun and interactive ways. We build on the work of Founders, Ron & Maurine Hatfield, to create a synergy of collaboration between our organization’s leaders, our creative talent group, our sponsors, our spokespeople, and our other partners to teach children around the world, ‘value-based’ lessons, giving them interpersonal and self-motivating tools to:
- Identify problems in the community and in the world where they can be an agent of help and change
- Identify possible solutions to resolve or diminish these problems
- Empower them to act in service and kindness in reaching these goals
Our Princes and Princesses, along with other characters and stories, create a world of wonder, magic, and inspiration to reinforce these concepts for these children to be ready to use them always.
Values that are taught will help them embody the qualities of a REAL PRINCE … PRINCESS including:
• Be courageous
• Be teachable
• Seek self-improvement
• Be hungry for knowledge
• Be loving and kind to others
• Be a good, loyal friend
• Be an enchanting light to the world through acts of service
We will continue to establish partnerships with world charities and organizations to relate our stories to real world problems, including developing third-world water supplies and the feeding, educating, and housing of so many young children who are suffering. We will continue to build a population of empowered PRINCES and PRINCESSES by teaching children who, individually and together, will transform societies, ideas, and hearts, providing relief to millions of suffering children and their families worldwide.
We will also continue to use our resources to enhance our mission and vision to become the leading world organization that celebrates the PRINCESS & PRINCE in EVERY young child .
