Holiday Inn held a Towel Amnesty Day in August 2003, donating $1 to Give Kids the World for every story that past guests told about how they used a purloined towel. Holiday Inn collected thousands of stories; the Atlanta-based chain chose several to publish as a second fundraiser for Give Kids the World. Spellbinders, Memphis, TN, produced the book.
The book sells online at Holiday-inn.com/towels for $25 The first thousand people who buy the book get a limited-edition Holiday Inn hand towel. Guests also can tell their own story on the site to trigger a $1 donation to the children's charity.
