Michelle Obama To Write Book About White House Garden, All Proceeds Go To Charity
I really, really like Michelle Obama. Especially since hearing that the first lady will be penning a book about her White House garden with all proceeds from the sales going to charity!
The as-of-yet-to-be-named book will be published in April 2012 by the Crown publishing group at Random House. It will explore her efforts to improve healthy eating with her “Let’s Move!” campaign, and also describe how she was inspired to plant the first edible garden on the White House’s South Lawn. in addition the book promises to reveal Michelle’s favorite healthy recipes— which we know will include a lot of veggies!
According to the Crown publishing group, Michelle recieved no advance for the book and instead has decided to donate all of the proceeds to charity, though a specific charity has yet to be announced.
We think it’s wonderful that the first lady is taking such an active role in promoting healthy eating, way to lead by example!
