I am starting to give more money to charity. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Help locally? Help in developing countries? Help animals, people, or the environment? And how should I involve my kids so they know how fortunate they are?
Well, this book definitely got me thinking. It’s about a family whose 14-year-old daughter wants to do more for others. Her parents are motivated by her good intentions and decide to sell their 6,500 square foot house and downsize to something half as big and half the price. They plan to give the other half of the proceeds to charity. This is the true story of this process. It’s interesting to hear how they chose who to give the money to, and how this act changes their family dynamics for the better. A short and uplifting book. (submitted by KA)
