Item Description...
PASSIONARIES: individuals who transform their compassionate visions into positive actions that significantly change the lives of others. Have you ever asked yourself, "How can one person really make a difference?" Passionaries answers that question with vivid, true stories of extraordinary social entrepreneurs turning their passions into action--and surprisingly shows how one person can change our world. This book captures an unsung movement unique to American culture--to create a legacy, make a mark, leave the world better. These modern-day heroes show each of us how we can do it too. True stories of more than 35 individuals, ages 6 to 89, serve as inspiration and guides. Each profile describes the leader of an organization that has significantly impacted millions of lives. Every nonprofit in financially efficient, has made a material impact on society, and is volunteer friendly. Readers will learn about what sparked the original idea for each organization, discover the creative ways obstacles were overcome, and see the power of change rippling out to second and third "generations" of lives. Facts, figures, and contact information included may encourage readers to join the ranks of the more than 20 million like-minded volunteers who helped build the organizations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Book To Inspire  Mar 9, 2007
Many books give you a 'good' feeling and then that feeling passes. This book makes you think about the good that many are doing to make this world a better place and they are doing it against many difficult odds and for truly humanitarian reasons. If you are 'feeling down' about how the world is going, pick up this book and feel 'inspired'. You just may want to act on an inspiration so watch out.
General-interest public library collections with readers interested in social issues will find PASSIONARIES inspirational.  Dec 14, 2006
Plenty of books advocate compassionate action, but few are as specific on how to go about translating ideals into action as PASSIONARIES, which offers up profiles of visionaries that made changes. These profiles document the transition from ideal to action, including special circumstances that spurred action and how they got started and overcame obstacles. General-interest public library collections with readers interested in social issues will find PASSIONARIES inspirational.

Read this book if you're wondering if there is any good in the world.  Dec 8, 2006
Barbara Metzler has two passions in life: one, to bring to light the positive influences ordinary people make on the world every single day, and two, to encourage all of us who read this book to join them and become "passionaries" ourselves. The stories are not just stories. They come complete with contact information and evidences of the "ripples" that form when committed people act on behalf of others. If you're even beginning to think about how you can change something, start with this book!
Refreshing Perspective on Society  Dec 3, 2006
What an inspiring book! Often all we hear about are the negative aspects of society. It is refreshing to read about the positive things happening and the people out there that are making the world a better place.
