“Simple Giving takes the whole concept of giving to another level entirely. It’s refreshing, fun, and practical. And a most exhilarating new way to think about the impact of charity.”
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times-bestselling author of Goddesses Never Age; Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom; and The Wisdom of Menopause
"Every so often, a book comes along that makes you say, 'Yes!' Simple Giving does that. At some level, we all want to give. But how to do it effectively is often the challenge. Jennifer tells us that and much, much more. Simple Giving is a must-read (and a definite 'must act-upon.') A huge contribution to a much better world."
—Paul Dunn, cofounder and chairman of B1G1 (Buy 1 Give 1)
"Each of us has opportunities in our lives to give, and Simple Giving asks us to determine what we are passionate enough about to get into action and help benefit someone else. Jennifer Iacovelli demystifies the idea that giving is only for those with huge amounts of money and loads of time, and distills it into chapters that introduce us to everyday people who have created legacies by their simple giving. This book is chock full of resources and ideas to help us realize how each one of us can be an everyday philanthropist through daily giving opportunities."
—Linda Cohen, author of 1,000 Mitzvahs: How Small Acts of Kindness Can Heal, Inspire, and Change Your Life
"The beauty of Simple Giving is its practical content. Jennifer has found the balance between inspiring stories and accessible giving measures, that help to turn the chaos of today’s philanthropy landscape into a roadmap for fulfilling end effective change-making. If you want to give effectively, read Simple Giving.”
—Karl Hofmann, CEO, Population Services International

—Jeannine Harvey, senior manager of strategic relationships at The ONE Campaign
"I first got hooked on Jennifer Iacovelli’s 'Another Jennifer' blog several years ago, appreciating her simple and refreshing approach to writing about philanthropy and giving. Now, everything I love about the blog has come together in one place in Simple Giving. Jennifer shares that giving daily is a key to a lifetime of happiness. She provides accessible ideas that demystify philanthropy and help readers make giving a natural activity in their everyday routine. From acts of kindness to using purchasing power to do good in the world, Simple Giving is a wonderfully refreshing guide to leading a joy filled life."
—Alissa Hauser, executive director of The Pollination Project

Favorite takeaways include:
1. Ethical Barcode. I can't wait to try out this app to help me make informed decisions about my buying!
2. Giving as a Business Model. Yes, let's be smart givers!
3. Good Guide. Scientists rate products on social, environmental, and health impact. Again, I am excited to see how some of my favorite products rate.
4. Define your giving goals.
Most important take away, which is consistent with Peter Druckers thinking, is that good is defined within limited scope and greatness/significance could only be achieved when we align our values, interest and strengths to contribute back to society.
Taking her dedication to giving back to the global community, Jennifer has written a fabulous book called Simple Giving: Easy Ways to Give Every Day, which explores the many ways we can give and offers us fresh, fun, insightful and practical ways anyone can weave giving into their daily lives.
