Author Doug Kirkpatrick’s re-released book, “Beyond Empowerment: The Age of the Self-Managed Organization,” recently hit bestseller status on Amazon, and now he will put the royalties to good use. Kirkpatrick recently announced that he will donate 50 percent of the royalties to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, beginning Tuesday, November 28, 2017, which has been designated as “Giving Tuesday.”
“Giving Tuesday” is a global day of giving, and a philanthropic counterweight to the more commercial “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday.” In making the donation announcement, he said, “Children are the future of the world. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is making heroic strides in securing that future by finding cures and saving lives. Their groundbreaking research has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20 percent in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. As a long-time supporter of St. Jude, I want to do everything in my power to help them continue their miraculous work.”
The re-release of “Beyond Empowerment: The Age of the Self-Managed Organization” has been a great success and reached bestseller status in three Amazon categories, even appearing alongside a recent book from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The book’s success has also led to numerous speaking engagements for Kirkpatrick, which has allowed him to make a significant contribution to St. Jude on “Giving Tuesday.”
