"These stories help us to see the best in others and inspire us to be the best we can be." From the youngest child to the oldest senior, each of us wants to help, to give back, to make a difference. We want to feed the hungry, care for the elderly, and teach the children. These heartwarming stories feature ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They show us that greatness grows out of simple acts of giving. For the last 20 years, Marianne Larned has been a traveler, living and working in communities across the country and around the world. She heard people everywhere express a common logic: a better life for their families and a greater sense of community. Stone Soup for the World reminds us that we can make the world a better place. A toolbox full of ideas and a resource guide, this book gives each and every one of us hope and direction for how to build a better world. One day at a time.
