Carrie Morgridge has written a very important book. So many people have told me they really want to help but they give nothing because they feel a small gift cannot make a difference. But it can as you will learn from the inspiring examples in Every Gift Matters. Philanthropy is for everyone, and giving not only benefits the recipient but the giver too.
