‘Giraffes’ author donates to Driscoll Children’s Hospital
Debra Young Hatch, author of “Giraffes in my Closet,” presented a $2,000 check from the proceeds of her book sales to Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
It was the first installment from For Kids’ Sake Publishing, Inc., a Corpus Christi-based children’s book publishing company, on its mission to donate book sale proceeds to benefit children struggling with longterm health issues. “That mission is that each book published is dedicated to a child who is living with a longterm health struggle,” said Hatch, For Kids’ Sake publisher/author. “What that means is part of the proceeds from the sale of each book go to a hospital or an organization that helps other children with similar ongoing heath issues.”
“Giraffes in My Closet” is dedicated to 7-year-old Heath Naumann, who has had multiple heart surgeries.
“Everyone who purchased a book is an integral part of this gift,” Hatch said.
