Kids On the Land has a goodwill ambassador named Cowboy Joe, and he attends all KOL events. He is modeled after the highly successful Flat Stanley literacy and community building activity, so Cowboy Joe is a flat card board cut-out with lots of personality. With a promise to have your picture taken with him, he engages the kids in conversation about their day and what they are learning.
