What Was Your Great Grandmother’s Name?
50 Thoughts On How Canadian Philanthropy Can Transform You, Your Family And Your Community
What if I were to ask you: “How would you feel if your great grandchildren knew nothing of your life, not even your first name?”
If you are like me, I am sure it would make you feel very uncomfortable. However, it is not too late to do something about it. By creating your legacy, you will continue to make a positive impact long after you’re gone and communicate to future generations the values which were most meaningful to you.
My book can help get you started. What Was Your Great Grandmother’s Name provides 50 simple, easy and encouraging reminders of why and how we give, many of which are based on my own personal experiences. Read it all the way through. Read it once a week. Or read one thought at a time when you have a spare five minutes. Then, give the book away. Not only will you have been transformed … but so will the person who receives it!
