Ivanka Trump will donate book proceeds to charity

Ivanka Trump will donate book proceeds to charity

As for the remainder of her advance and any royalties she makes from book sales, she will donate them to the Boys & Girls Club of America and the National Urban League.

Trump's book, "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success", a book of advice for women in the workforce, is slated to come out May 2. It will contribute all future royalties that are in excess of the advance to the fund during the period from May 1, 2017, to May 1, 2022, according to the statement.

The fund will support "the economic empowerment for women and girls", Trump said in a statement. In a recent Facebook posting, Ivanka Trump wrote that she would not promote her new book because of "ethics" concerns - a book she started writing back in the halcyon days in 2015, when her father was still a real estate mogul, and she was still being held up as an example of a strong-minded working mother to many people around the country. "Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances".

The White House said Ivanka planned to give up some income, minimize certain assets, and promised she will recuse herself from policy matters that may pose conflict of interest concerns. An adviser to her father, President Trump, first and foremost. His press secretary announced that he'd given his first three months' of pay to the National Park Service.

"Empowering women has been central to my mission throughout my career, and with my book, Women Who Work, I hope to do just that", Ivanka shared when explaining the book's mission.

Images and photographs of the surface water were taken from military aircraft from the year 1947 and satellite imagery from 1973. He said it was "a stretch", though to say that surface rivers like that on the Nansen shelf would protect the ice.

It not yet clear where the rest of her book's proceeds will be donated. She is now an official, unpaid federal employee - a role she took after Democratic lawmakers said in March that her previously unspecified position raised questions about how she'd avoid conflicts.

Ivanka Trump's efforts to work as a champion for women have met with some skepticism.
