Earlier this year, Look To The Stars brought you the story of Jennifer Aniston's newest charity project: narrating a children’s audio book. We can now reveal that the book will be released on October 24 – National Make A Difference Day.
The story – written by Nick Katsoris – is called Loukoumi’s Good Deeds, the third release in an ongoing series about doing nice things for other people. The stories feature Loukoumi the lamb and her friends Gus the Bear, Fistiki the Cat, Dean the Dog and Marika the Monkey – a group of characters that like doing good deeds. Among the actors voicing characters for ’Loukoumi’s Good Deeds’ are Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis, Gloria Gaynor and US news presenter Alexis Christoforous.
The actress has promised that $2 from every purchase of the audio book will go to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and to celebrate the release, the book’s author will hold a special reading of the book at the hospital on October 20.
“It is a wonderful story, plain and simple,” said a spokesperson for Aniston. “She did it because she wanted to do it with her dad, as well as she loved the story.”
