On Friday 13 July, Pan Macmillan Australia, Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton and Australia’s leading booksellers presented us with a cheque for $84,500 from the proceeds of Terry’s Dumb Dot Story.
Published by Pan Macmillan Australia, Terry’s Dumb Dot Story is a new ‘Treehouse’ short story in which illustrator Terry "takes over the storytelling duties with (predictably!) disastrous results until author Andy steps in to save the day… and only makes things worse," says Andy to Books&Publishing.
The book was retailed for $2.00 in Australia and New Zealand, and the full RRP amount was donated to six children’s charities, including our Foundation.
We are overjoyed that the story was such a success and congratulate Pan Macmillan, Terry and our Lifetime ambassador Andy, for choosing and believing in our Foundation. This will impact the lives of many children in remote communities and we thank you for your generousity and support.
