Most people think they have to donate a lot of time and money in order to make a difference. But there are easy ways to integrate giving into our personal and professional lives that don't necessarily involve either. Jennifer Iacovelli shows us how to make giving a part of our daily routines. Even seemingly insignificant gestures such as holding the door open for a stranger or paying someone else's toll can brighten that person's day. In the long term, we can also think about ways to make sustainability and social good a part of our business models and shopping habits. After working in the nonprofit sector in communications and development for ten years, Iacovelli became frustrated with the disconnect between givers and receivers. Givers (or potential givers) didn't realize how much of an impact they could make, while recipients couldn't thank the organization enough. In Simple Giving, Iacovelli inspires us with the stories of how people, ranging from moms to social entrepreneurs, are giving back in creative ways. She presents six giving models, ending each chapter with ideas to put these models into action, as well as additional resources to help us figure out how best to give in ways that fit our unique lifestyles and interests. By being more mindful of how our actions impact others and taking steps toward positive change, we also live happier, more fulfilled lives.
