內容簡介

An unprecedented surge of ordinary people are using their time, talents, and travel to make a better world.

What's Your Part of the Give-Back Solution?

Reaching out and supporting others brings out the best in all of us. Giving back strengthens America--but the under-appreciated secret is that it lifts us up, too. Part call-to-action, part inspiration, part practical research guide to make-a-difference opportunities, The Give-Back Solution captures the idealism and generosity sweeping our country, even in the face of serious challenges. Dance to raise money for fighting malaria Organize an office book drive Build schools in Belize on a volunteer vacation Invite friends over for a dinner that benefits the hungry Visit the Amazon and support sustainable rainforests Work in a Kenyan orphanage Clear trails in America's wilderness Clean up rivers in your own backyard Micro-bankroll an African entrepreneur climbing out of poverty Use your 9-to-5 experience to teach business skills in your community or online

With amazing stories of everyday volunteers having the time of their lives giving back, social change leader Susan Skog shows how you can join the groundswell of goodwill, whether you volunteer abroad or support efforts locally, and whatever your time, talents, or resources.
