Editorial Reviews

"a book well worth reading, both for the sheer human interest of the stories Nowell has to tell, and for the implications of her stories for social policy decisions that we will all have to contend with over the next decade."

— Vancouver Sun

"There is much food for thought in Nowell's look at how and why people give away money."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"an enlightening look into the heart of extraordinary individuals."

— The Villager
