I recently shared some of the story behind my book Simple Giving on World Moms Blog. As we get closer to launch date – October 27, 2015 to be exact – I want to share more bits and pieces about the book.
There are some really great stories in the book that illustrate the six different giving models I write about. I also include action steps and resources at the end of each chapter. And, of course, I talk about the psychology of giving. Because it all makes more sense when you understand why it feels good to give. (Last week’s Philanthropy Friday touched on that subject.)
I will be sharing more about the giving models, companies and people that are featured in the book in the weeks ahead. Today, I want to share with you the very first endorsement I received for Simple Giving:
The beauty of Simple Giving is its practical content. Jennifer has found the balance between inspiring stories and accessible giving measures that help to turn the chaos of today’s philanthropy landscape into a roadmap for fulfilling end effective change-making. If you want to give effectively, read Simple Giving.
~Karl Hofmann, CEO, PSI
You may recall that I visited the headquarters of PSI last year and geeked out on global development for a day. PSI is an organization that I have gotten to know well and am consistently impressed by their work. I am truly honored to not only have Karl read my book before launch date, but also endorse it.
I am also organizing a blog tour for the book. If you are a blogger and are interested in getting a copy to read and review and possibly one to give away to your readers, let me know in the comment section or contact me.
Each Friday, the another jennifer blog shares stories of those who incorporate philanthropy into their everyday lives – personally and professionally – in a creative and unique way. If you have a story you’d like to share, please contact Jennifer. Read past stories here.
