This compact and thoughtful guide will inspire you to live more generously in the world. Based on the idea that there are simple, even downright easy, ways to give back to the world around us, Live Generously contains 50 ways to connect to your community. Ideas range from the effortless to the more ambitious: become an organ donor, give thanks before a meal, buy gifts that make a difference, plant a vegetable garden, make your own greeting cards, commit random acts of generosity, give something away (and declutter your life in the process). The book was inspired by the U.K. project "A Year of Living Generously." The online community began in 2004 with 100 people and has grown to over 1,200 people doing over 7,300 generous actions and generating an immeasurable amount of goodwill.
