This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   When Celia Foote called the Leefolt residence, Aibileen referred Minny to her since she was looking for a help. When Celia Foote called the Leefolt residence and asked if Aibileen had any recommendations for a help, she said "no".
   Hilly sends Cecelia a letter requesting 200 for the ripped dress as a donation for the children of Africa. She also asks her to refrain from volunteering for any events as she was on probation. Cecelia sends her the check. There is no mention of a letter, the check just arrives at Hillys.
   Aibileen tells Skeeter the truth about Constantine. Skeeter learns the truth from her mother.
   Skeeter's mother is sick and gets test done. She eventually discovers that she has cancer. Skeeter's mother is sick from the moment we see her.
   Miss Phelan sends a check to Constantine in Chicago for her birthday. Lulabelle sends it back along with the obituary for Constantine indicating she died three weeks after leaving Jackson. Skeeter's brother goes to Chicago to try and bring Constantine home but he discovers that she has died.

"Skeeter visits Aibileen to tell her they are printing 5000 more books and they will all be getting more money."/ "No mention of more prints." No, but Skeeter's letter promises more money to come, and the book does appear to be a hit since we see several people independently choosing to read it even before they start to realize that it's about their own town.
