“Here is a powerhouse book of tips, tactics, and approaches for creating corporate giving and volunteer programs for companies of all sizes. They simply work. A fantastic book!” —Jeff Sheehan, IBM influencer/futurist

“Non-profits need to share this book with potential corporate funders! A Million Dollars in Change contains powerful, practical, and solid advice for any company that wants to start a community involvement program.” —Matthew Campo, president, Ronald McDonald House, Long Island

”There are enterprises and institutions that write corporate giving, charity, and community on the wall. Then there are the few who actually do it. The ones who give and then give some more. Alessandra Cavalluzzi personifies it all. Her work with veterans both on Long Island and nationally has impacted the lives of our heroes who live next door.” —Matthew Eversmann, USA (ret) first sergeant, author, motivational speaker, and inspiration for the film Black Hawk Down
