Charming Children’s Books Endorsed by Pro NFL Player @tclifonti


tony and charlesTC LiFonti, an educator and coach, has co-authored five children’s books with Charles Tillman. Charles “Peanut” Tillman is an All-Pro corner-back for the Carolina Panthers, formerly of the Chicago Bears, and heads the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation.  Charles is a very strong philanthropic figure throughout Chicago and the state of Illinois where he is always working to help enrich the lives of those around him and in need.  Additionally, since 2005, Charles Tillman’s charitable efforts have impacted the lives of over one million Chicago-area children.

Through the sale of these books, the intention is to help make an impact on people in the Chicago-land area in need of help and/or assistance.  Each hopes that these books help the Cornerstone Foundation raise awareness and financially help to better assist the foundation and those impacted by its efforts.

Summaries of the five stories can be read here.

bearloveTony believes the most rewarding aspect is the books’ profits benefiting the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation. There truly is no greater outcome. In approaching Charles and his wife about this project, Tony says he wanted to make it clear that he wanted these books to be able to help others in a more direct manner.

Knowing that sixty-percent of all book profits go directly to his foundation and help those in need makes all of the efforts beyond rewarding.
