5.0 out of 5 stars real people making a real difference, November 6, 2012

This review is from: Everyday Heroes: 50 Americans Changing the World One Nonprofit at a Time (Hardcover)
Everyday Heroes: 50 Americans Changing the World One Nonprofit at a Time profiles a select group of people committed to making a real and lasting difference. The fifty individuals profiled are diverse in every way, including age (from eight year old Alex whose parents have continued a charity in her name since her passing in 2004 to multiple nonprofit leaders well beyond traditional retirement age), how they found their way into their current role, the size and scope of the organizations they lead, and how they and their respective organizations measure success. These fifty extraordinary people are united in their commitment to cause rather than profit, hope over despair, future not past, and working humbly rather than pridefully. Together, they remind us that the American entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the nonprofit arena.

This thoughtful and visually compelling coffee table book belongs not only in homes, but also in nonprofit lobbies and school libraries. Readers will be encouraged to enter into or expand their own involvement in nonprofit endeavors and, more than a few will be inspired to turn their dreams into reality by founding a nonprofit.
