Partnership on Munsch book nets $20,000 so far for charity

A little while ago, we posted here about an 8-year-old grade 4 student from Guelph who published a book called Braids by renowned children's author Robert Munsch, with all proceeds going to a charity on behalf of an orphans' home in Kenya. It was being marketed in partnership with New Internationalist, an independent magazine renowned for its campaigning stance on a range of world issues

Well, Taya Kendall's venture has, in five months, sold more than $20,000 worth of books and the first run is expected to top $35,000. A good story, for her, for the orphans and for the magazine that's helping her.
