Publishers Weekly -Debunking the belief that one has to be wealthy or influential to help others or start an organization, this enlightening guidebook from activist Perkey, who started a national student service organization from her dorm room, outlines a strategy, mindset, and step-by-step plan for using personal goals, skills and strengths to tackle a specific social problem. Perkey's encouraging, empathetic book is packed with helpful nuts-and-bolts information (from choosing a cause to finding funding) as well as the kind of infectious enthusiasm that makes taking action, breaking down apathy, and overcoming obstacles a rousing prospect. Using her own story alongside case studies of others-like Congressman Tom Perriello, who first served his community as a Boy Scout, or Lisa Spodak, who raised $110,000 for breast cancer research-Perkey showcases the power of one passionate individual armed with determination, a plan and a calling.
