An excerpt from an April 10th press release “DK Publishing announced today a $95,000 children’s book donation on behalf of the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion, two all-volunteer organizations of Star Wars(TM) costume enthusiasts who raise money for children’s charities all over the world. The donation, a record-breaking amount for DK, was made to The Today Show Charitable Foundation, Inc., who dispersed over 7,000 new, full-color reference books to The Pajama Program for distribution to children across the country.” You can read the entire article here.
