“Fighting for the big issues … in my small, individual way. ”

The teachings in Harold and Maude helped Lucy through the darkest of days. She wrote Little Book of Maudism to share the life-affirming philosophy, hoping that it might provide comfort, wisdom, and inspiration to others. The book was a labour of love and a non-profit venture. In 2016, Little Book of Maudism was first published, raising £1000 for the mental health charity Mind.

Now in it’s second press, the Colin Higgins Foundation receive all proceeds, allowing for Little Book of Maudism to directly contribute to Colin’s charity. The foundation describes Colin as “a caring man who wanted justice, equality and opportunity for all, regardless of sexual preferences”, and through their work supporting the LQBTQ youth in under-served communities his legacy lives on.
