August 1, 2004, Washington, DC -- Robert J. Danzig, former chief executive of The Hearst Newspapers, has been honored by ForeWord magazine for his books Every Child Deserves a Champion and There Is Only One You.

ForeWord Magazine is a literary review trade journal devoted to covering independent pr sses, ranging in size from university presses to micro and eBook publishers who publish with less frequency.

The magazine honored Every Child Deserves a Champion with its book of the year (gift book category) bronze award. There Is Only One You was a finalist in the competition. Both books were published by Child & Family Press, the publishing arm of the Child Welfare League of America (CWLA).

After 20 years as head of The Hearst Newspapers, Danzig retired in 1998. He grew up in foster homes and has devoted his new career to helping other foster children, caregivers, and social workers nationwide by sharing the messages through these two books and demonstrating through speaking appearances how others can influence the lives of those in the foster care community.

According to the most recent data available from the U.S. Children's Bureau, across the nation, approximately 542,000 children and young people are living in the custody of state foster care agencies because their parents are unable or unwilling to care for them.

Danzig's net royalties from book sales are being donated to a charity he and his wife developed to offer college assistance to foster children.
