Giving makes the world a better place, and it benefits both those who give and those who receive. There are many ways that you can help others by giving.
Our guest is Harvey McKinnon, President of consulting company Harvey McKinnon Associates. He is a trainer, inspirational speaker, and the author of Hidden Gold, The Eleven Questions Every Donor Asks, Tiny Essentials of Monthly Committed Giving, and coauthor of The Power of Giving, which is written on the premise that giving benefits both the recipients and the giver.
pogIn The Power of Giving, Harvey and co-author Azim Jamal offer you both inspiring stories and new ideas, which they guarantee will improve your community and create more abundance in your life. The purpose of the book is to ignite a spark in each individual to give more — and to help you realize the many ways you can give.
They say if people gave just a little more — of their time, skills, compassion and wealth — the world would be a more peaceful and healthier place, and they show you dozens of practical and easy ways to make your giving have a greater impact.
