In September 2014 I published a translation of my late sister, Renate Kraft's, children's book "The Tale of the Sleeping Carousel," that had originally been written in German. Because the main character in the book is a blind girl, I decided, in the name of WFWP, to offer $1 of every copy sold to the Penrickton Center for Blind Children that I had previously visited.
