We all want to make a difference and "Town & Country" shows that philanthropy is not just for the wealthy. This inspirational book explains how to donate money and time for optimum impact, no matter what your level of income. It features the personal stories of a range of contributors, from celebrities like Gary Sinise who is cofounder of an organisation to donate school supplies to Iraqi children and Osceola McCarty, a laundress who, at 85, donated $150,000 - the bulk of her life savings - to a scholarship fund for black students at the University of Mississippi. If you have an impulse to donate your time or money then these inspiring stories and concrete advice about how to select the right cause will help make your generosity really count.
