Overview

Do Your Giving While You Are Living is an illuminating little book with a very big—and very timely—message. It inspires readers to embrace giving and to understand that the highest purpose in life is quite simple: doing for others. Featuring contributions from some of the most influential and philanthropic people and organizations in the world today, this book shows readers how the act of giving can change the world and also change their own lives in ways they never thought possible.

Do Your Giving While You Are Living offers food for thought in bite-sized bits. Each entry includes a quote, a brief first-person story of how one of the book's contributors—from leading-edge thinkers to hometown heroes—made a difference, and an action step readers can put to use in their lives. The vignettes are as moving as they are enlightening, teaching readers the power of giving and demonstrating specific ways how that power can be put into action, no matter what age or station in life.
