How to Save the World on $5 a Day provides a fascinating, multi-cultural look at the history and traditions of charitable giving, and offers innovative instruction on the theory and practice of a new form of altruism dubbed personal philanthropy — all in the form of an inspirational novelette.
Designed to be read in a single sitting, this “Parable of Personal Philanthropy” uses the unexpected meeting and burgeoning romance between a passionately committed social activist named Annette and a creatively blocked artist named John to explore how even modest charitable giving can lead to personal happiness…a reinvigorated sense of self-worth… and ultimately, spiritual enlightenment.
The secret is not how much you give; it’s how you give…
It’s not about amount. It’s about intent…
Caring not currency…
Mindfulness not money…
In colorful, cliffhanger chapters that advance the story of Annette and John…bring to life charitable fables from Catholicism, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism…and introduce the reader to innovative ways to vividly experience the mental and spiritual benefits of personal philanthropy, this book offers a marvelous glimpse of life as it can be with just a slight adjustment in our perceptions and attitudes.
It sends a timely and important message of hope and possibility to a worldwide audience that yearns for diverse and creative approaches on how to experience personal enlightenment
and…How to Save the World on $5 a Day.
