Summary
A look at how individual endeavors can save lives and solve problems, offering compelling examples of both citizen and corporate activism at work in the world today. "Almost everyone--regardless of income, available time, age, and skills--can do something useful for others and, in the process, strengthen the fabric of our shared humanity." Inspiring stories of people and organizations--some famous, as well as many private citizens whom readers will be hearing about for the first time--show that the act of giving takes many forms; that offerings of time, skills, objects, and ideas can be just as important as contributions of money; and that the lives of those who give are changed as well.--From publisher description.
