recently reported about a new book that will donate 10% of its proceeds to charity:

More than 13 million children suffer hunger, homelessness, and illiteracy in the richest nation on earth. In response to this startling statistic, Judson Press has released “Hope for Children in Poverty: Profiles and Possibilities.”

Ten percent of proceeds from sales of this book will go to the Children in Poverty Initiative of National Ministries, American Baptist Churches USA.

Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund, sets our moral compass in her foreword for this important new resource. Writes Edelman:

“We all have a stake in improving the lives of America’s children, and for people of faith, this is more than just an opportunity: it is a mandate and a calling.”

I like the idea of donating some of the proceeds of a book about world hunger and poverty, because those issues relate to charity itself. I cannot personally recommend the book since I have not read it yet. I will order it though, and offer my thoughts on it once I read it.
