What's Your Part of the Give-Back Solution?

Reaching out and supporting others brings out the best in all of us. Giving back strengthens America--but the under-appreciated secret is that it lifts us up, too. Part call-to-action, part inspiration, part practical research guide to make-a-difference opportunities, The Give-Back Solution captures the idealism and generosity sweeping our country, even in the face of serious challenges.
