I first got hooked on Jennifer Iacovelli ’s “another jennifer” blog several years ago, appreciating her simple and refreshing approach to writing about philanthropy and giving. Now, everything I love about the blog has come together in one place in Simple Giving: easy ways to give every day.
Jennifer shares that giving daily is a key to a lifetime of happiness. She provides accessible ideas that demystify philanthropy and help readers make giving a natural, low effort activity in their everyday routine. From acts of kindness to using purchasing power to do good in the world, Simple Giving is a wonderfully refreshing guide to leading a joy filled life. ~ Alissa Hauser, executive director of The Pollination Project
I’ve already said this, but I am humbled by the fact that people have taken the time to read my book, Simple Giving, prior to launch. And the reactions so far have been wonderful to hear.
You may recognize The Pollination Project, as I have told their story on the blog in the past. The Pollination Project seeds $1,000 grants to “individual change makers” every single day of the year. They recently celebrated their 1,000th grant.
The first time I spoke with Alissa, I knew we were on the same page about philanthropy. I am elated to read her reaction to the book.
I’ve been asked by a few people as to where you can purchase the book. Though it’s not officially out until 10/27/15, you can pre-order it in paperback or ebook forms from several outlets. I took a screen shot from Tarcher Penguin’s (my publisher) site to show the places where you can order it. Pretty cool.
One more reminder: 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.
