A Year of Living Generously : Dispatches from the Frontlines of Philanthropy

A Year of Living Generously: Dispatches from the Frontlines of Philanthropy

By Lawrence Scanlan
$19.95 Regular price




A Year of Living Generously follows award-winning journalist Lawrence Scanlan as he volunteers with 12 different charities, among them well-known institutions Habitat for Humanity, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Canadian Crossroads.

Drawing from first-hand experiences -- serving in a soup kitchen at "Vinnie's," the St. Vincent de Paul drop-in centre in Kingston, ON, to building houses for Habitat for Humanity in post-Katrina New Orleans, to teaching at a women's radio station in Senegal for Canadian Crossroads -- Scanlan tests the ideas and theories on global aid and charity and makes a compelling case for greater commitment and real connection, in the form of on-the-ground volunteer work, from us all.

The result is an engaging yet informative primer for today's volunteers, young and old, who are looking to make a meaningful contribution.
