Put your political affiliations aside, this book is not about politics. Former President Bill Clinton has stepped over political lines in Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World and how every one of us can make a difference and make our world a better place.
Think you don’t make a difference and your voice doesn’t count? Think again. Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World shows case after case of how even the smallest voice can make a big impact on the lives of others.
From a woman whose family was slaughtered in genocide in Rwanda, and wanted to help other families who had gone through the same thing, to US children who wanted to make sure their counterparts in Pakistan could go to school.
Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, takes you along the paths of those who wanted to make a difference and how their desire to help others has turned into amazing charities that are bettering the lives of those around them and around the world.
Once you are inspired to action, there are tips and advice on what each of us can do to become a part of the solution to the world’s problems and make our planet a better place. There are a few underlying messages to this book.
The first is that no matter how little you think you can do to help others, we all have skills, traits and specialties that others do not have. Our knowledge and time can be a great boon for a charitable organization.
The other message is that while you as a person may be making a small difference, if we all band together, making small differences, the result will be a major change for the better that will be felt by the people who are the most needy around the world.
Former President Bill Clinton narrates his own book, making it even more enjoyable to listen to. His passion about the subject is evident in his voice and that passion energizes the listener to want to take action.
