DK Donates $50,000 in Books on Behalf of 501st Legion

Post by TK-1161 Curt »

In an inspiring act of gratitude for countless hours of costumed volunteerism, DK Publishing (responsible for the popular Star Wars "Visual Dictionary" book series) announced a $50,000 children's book donation on behalf of the 501st Legion. More than 7,000 new, full-color reference books are being distributed to The Boys and Girls Clubs of America with help from The Today Show Charitable Foundation, Inc. "We wanted to thank the 501st Legion in a big way," said DK's Associate Director of Publicity, Rachel Kempster. “We know that children’s charities are near and dear to hearts of all 501st volunteers." Based upon the success of last year's LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary events, fans can look forward to more DK/501st collaborations this year!
