18,000 children die of hunger every day. By 2030, there will be no glaciers in Glacier National Park. 47 million Americans do not have health insurance. The economy's in turmoil. Job loss. Foreclosures. Illiteracy. It's easy to feel powerless in the face of such depressing news. And yet many people in today's generations are more eager than ever to get involved, to do something, anything, to improve the world. They crave meaningful lives that are worth remembering. Change the World, Change Your Life shows you how to get involved and effectively address the problems you care about most, from your own backyard to the world stage. It provides a blueprint for being of service and includes practical resources for making a difference in a way that will also change your life. Interlaced with stories of individuals who have found ways to give, large and small, it is exactly the right book for these times.
