The Difference a Day Makes: 365 Ways to Change Your World in Just 24 Hours Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This timely compilation features 365 simple actions people can take to change the world, one day - or even five minutes - at a time. Each suggested action, in 16 "helping" categories, can be started and finished in a day or less, and none requires a cash donation. Readers may choose to accomplish a different altruistic step each day of the year, activate the same tool every day, or take actions that address a personally favored issue, such as animal welfare, or the pursuit of peace. Possibilities for compassionate service include acting as driver for a battered women's shelter, planting trees or a garden at a schoolyard, recycling running shoes into a playground surface, taking a day off from consumerism, aiding low-income students in finding grants and scholarships, helping unemployed workers put together resumes, and much more.

Synopsis:

If your compassionate instincts are greater than the time or energy you can spare, The Difference a Day Makes is all you need to turn your good intentions into powerful action. Flip this book open to any page and discover simple yet meaningful things you can do - in a few minutes or hours - to become an "everyday altruist" and improve your world. Book jacket.
