To show their support in rebranding the image of fatherhood, Hogan Hilling and Al Watts plan to donate 10% of the author royalties to a fatherhood organization that has played an important part in their growth and success as dads: The National At-Home Dad Network (formerly Daddyshome,Inc.), a 501c3 non-profit corporation that provides support, education and advocacy for fathers who are the primary caregivers of their children and holds the distinct honor of hosting the longest consecutive running fathering event in the country – the Annual At-Home Dads Convention.
