We’re thrilled to report that Barron’s Educational Services, the publisher of Little Boy Blue, has just made its first donation to The Petfinder Foundation based on the book’s sales during its first quarter of publication.
The amount is being kept confidential at the publisher’s request, but we have been told the figure, and we are excited to be able to say that it is a substantial donation.
Lisa Robinson, executive director of The Petfinder Foundation, sent a lovely letter of thanks that stated: “Barron’s, Kim Kavin, and Little Boy Blue have all been great supporters of The Petfinder Foundation as well as advocates for adoptable pets all over the country.”
The Petfinder Foundation logo will continue to appear on the cover of Little Boy Blue, and Barron’s will continue to make donations in keeping with the book’s overall sales figures.
All of us on the Little Boy Blue team are thrilled to be able to help The Petfinder Foundation, which in 2011 alone awarded more than $8 million in grants to shelters and rescue groups that are striving every day to help all the wonderful dogs like Blue.
