This book is actually about finding a passion in life and reminds us there is more to life than the day to day. It tells us how to make a real difference with our time, money, and our hearts. The author not only assures us that we make a difference, but he tells us how to choose our passions and focus them to make a maximum impact on our chosen cause. He shows us how to organize our lives to make great things happen. The author shares some amazing anecdotes of people who have helped and been helped, and shares his great experience and the fulfillment it gave him. It’s very informative and exceptionally inspirational.

This is a book that appears to be short, but it can be life-changing if used appropriately. Have you ever wanted to get involved in changing the world for the better but did not know where to begin? This is the book for you! Devin Thorpe has organized this book in such a succinct fashion that you are sure to find the information for which you seek.
The author covers everything. He gives you real information about charities that really change people's lives all over the world. He gives you addresses--including web addresses and even e-mail addresses. He brings up personal stories--and some of those stories are hard to read, but they are incredibly uplifting.
One thing I had never considered was the issue of funding charity projects. He spends several chapters throughout discussing how to get the funds, how to budget, and even tax benefits of charitable giving. It is clear that this author knows what he is talking about, and I plan to keep this book as a reference. If you want to make a difference in this world, pick up this book today!
