Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just sixteen years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling he met a young boy begging on the streets of India, who after being asked what he wanted most in the world, simply answered, “A pencil.” This small request led to a staggering series of events that took Braun backpacking through dozens of countries before eventually leaving one of the world’s most prestigious jobs to found Pencils of Promise, the organization he started with just $25 that has since built more than 200 schools around the world. The Promise of a Pencil chronicles Braun’s journey to find his calling, as each chapter explains one clear step that every person can take to turn your biggest ambitions into reality, even if you start with as little as $25. His story takes readers behind the scenes with business moguls and village chiefs, world-famous celebrities and hometown heroes. Driven by compelling stories and shareable insights, this is a vivid and inspiring book that will give you the tools to make your own life a story worth telling. *All proceeds from this book will support Pencils of Promise.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Bill Gates is not only the world's most successful capitalist; he's the world's biggest philanthropist. Gates has approached philanthropy the same way he revolutionized computer software: with a fierce ambition to change the rules of the game. That's why at last year's annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Gates advocated a 'creative capitalism', in which big corporations should integrate doing good into their way of doing business. This controversial new idea is discussed and debated by the more than 40 contributors to this book, among them three Nobel laureates and two former U.S. cabinet secretaries. Edited by author and columnist Michael Kinsley, Creative Capitalismbrings together some of the world's best minds to engage Gates's challenge. From Warren Buffet, who seconds Gates's analysis, to Lawrence Summers, who worries about the consequences of multiple corporate objectives, the essays cover a broad spectrum of opinion. Creative Capitalismis not just a book for philanthropists. It's a book that challenges the conventional wisdom about our economic system, a roadmap for the new global economy that is emerging as capitalism adapts itself once again to a changing world.

A blueprint for a national leadership movement to transform theway the public thinks about giving Virtually everything our society has been taught about charityis backwards. We deny the social sector the ability to grow becauseof our short-sighted demand that it send every short-term dollarinto direct services. Yet if the sector cannot grow, it can nevermatch the scale of our great social problems. In the face of thisdilemma, the sector has remained silent, defenseless, anddisorganized. In Charity Case, Pallotta proposes a visionarysolution: a Charity Defense Council to re-educate the public andgive charities the freedom they need to solve our most pressingsocial issues. Proposes concrete steps for how a national Charity DefenseCouncil will transform the public understanding of the humanitariansector, including: building an anti-defamation league and legaldefense for the sector, creating a massive national ongoing adcampaign to upgrade public literacy about giving, and ultimatelyenacting a National Civil Rights Act for Charity and SocialEnterprise From Dan Pallotta, renowned builder of social movements andinventor of the multi-day charity event industry (including theAIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days) that has cumulatively raisedover $1.1 billion for critical social causes The hotly-anticipated follow-up to Pallotta’sgroundbreaking book Uncharitable Grounded in Pallotta’s clear vision and deep social sectorexperience, Charity Case is a fascinating wake-up call for fixingthe culture that thwarts our charities’ ability to change theworld.

Race for Relevance provides a no-nonsense look at today's realities and how associations operate and what they need to do to remain relevant in the future. Based on more than 40 years of combined experience working with more than 1,000 organizations, the authors examine 5 key areas where the traditional approach that organizations have taken in the past needs to be altered. The 5 key areas of change are: • Overhaul the governance model and committee operations (and get the right people focused on the right things). • Empower the CEO and leverage staff expertise. • Zero in on your member market. • Rationalize programs and services--and focus where you can have an effect. • Get the supporting technology framework right. The book includes worksheets, checklists, and case studies all geared towards helping association leaders--staff and volunteers alike--to kick off the thought-provoking discussions that are generally at the forefront of change, be prepared for those fighting for the status quo, and to implement change without sacrificing your influence. Order a copy today for all of your association leaders and start your drive to thrive.
