First Lady Shares Royalties From Book
Hillary Rodham Clinton says she’ll donate profits from her book, “It Takes a Village,” to children’s hospitals and other programs that help young people - and she hopes other Americans will be inspired to help, too.
The first installment, about $750,000 before taxes, will be divided among 15 hospitals and 23 other programs mentioned in the book, she said Friday.
Clinton presented the money during a visit to the Children’s National Medical Center. The first lady - accompanied by the White House cat, Socks - participated in the hospital’s Christmas program for the third year.
The bulk of the money was given to hospitals the first lady has visited over the past four years.
