Overview

A GUIDE FOR CHANGING MILLIONS OF LIVESPickOne will ignite and guide your passion to make a difference. It makes it easy for you to identify and help the causes that you strongly believe in. Many of us are doing less that we would like because we're bombarded with solicitations, the needs seem overwhelming, we're uncertain of how our money and volunteer efforts will be used, and/or if we feel deeply about a cause, we many not know how to help. PickOne eliminates these hurdles by describing the organizations that are widely praised for their efficiency and effectiveness and are making a real difference.Yes, we see and hear bad news on the media, but what goes unreported is the fact that so many individuals and organizations are doing incredibly powerful things to make this world a better place. You'll find many of them in PickOne.

Editorial Reviews

Carol Hoyer, PhD
How many times have we said to ourselves “I should get involved,” and yet do nothing about it? How do we know which organizations are legitimate? The authors have given us those answers in their very detailed and well-researched book. Each section is broken down into different levels of volunteerism—from international to local. The authors provide an overview of the mission of the organization, and how it is recognized... a very organized and well-written book.

Why I researched and wrote this book: For years now I and my many friends and associates have been inundated with solicitations. Under guise of surveys, questionnaires, dramatic alerts, etc., they all want money. But I thought there's got to be a better way. So I began a lengthy research effort into international, national and local charities. I learned which ones have great reputations but don't spend money wisely, and the many unknown ones that do terrific work efficiently.
