How A Month of Giving Can Change your LifeBook - 2009
Recounts how the author was advised to focus her attention on others as part of her therapy after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, describing the transformative benefits of giving gifts that inspired her to create the online 29-Day Giving Challenge to help others to renew life energy.
29 Gifts is the insightful story of the author’s life change as she embraces and reflects on the naturally reciprocal process of giving and receiving. Many of Walker’s gifts were simple ?a phone call, spare change, a Kleenex. Yet the acts were transformative. By Day 29, not only had Walker’s health and happiness improved, but she had created a worldwide giving movement.
The book also includes personal essays from others whose lives changed for the better by giving, plus pages for the reader to record their own journey. More than a memoir, 29 Gifts offers inspiring lessons on how a simple daily practice of altruism can dramatically alter your outlook on the world.
