Have you ever felt the urge to do more and give more, but didn’t know how to do this? You’ll love this book, Simple Giving.
I am so very, very excited to share this book with you: Simple Giving by Jennifer Iacovelli. Jennifer is not only a very close personal friend, but she is the creator of Philanthropy Friday, a series on her blog dedicated to sharing how others are making a difference in the world.
My son Bug recently guest posted about his idea for a recess club so that everyone has someone to play with at recess. Go read it, it’s cute!
If you’d like to listen to an interview with Jennifer, check out this interview here.
Giving makes you happy. Seriously. Simple acts of kindness can change the world. It’s a belief that Jennifer and I share, but guess what? Science backs this up.
I am very proud not only to share the amazing work by my friend, but also, Jennifer shared my story about this blog and my nonprofit, Sunshine After the Storm.
I really love this book. It shows us that it doesn’t take much to make a big difference. And these days, it seems like we all need to be doing what we can.
ABOUT SIMPLE GIVING
You can make a difference on a daily basis, and it’s not as difficult as you might think. Simple Giving includes more than 40 ideas to make the world a better place.
Most people think they have to donate a lot of time and money in order to make a difference. But there are simple ways to integrate giving into our personal and professional lives that don’t involve either. In Simple Giving, Jennifer Iacovelli shows us how to make giving a part of our daily routines. It can involve something as simple as holding the door open for a stranger or paying someone else’s toll, which will brighten that person’s day. We can also think about ways to make sustainability and social good a part of our business models.
