DAVE TOYCEN, President and CEO of World Vision Canada, believes that generosity can save your life. He knows it can build community and help bring social justice and peace to our troubled world. He has seen it in the most unlikely places, witnessing the freedom individuals have gained simply through acts of giving. He tells of Deborah, a mother in Rwanda whose son was murdered, but whose faith and courage brought her to a place of reconciliation with the killer. In another anecdote, he introduces us to a boy in Kosovo whose spontaneous generosity was a moving testament to the goodness of the human spirit.
Throughout his journey, Toycen provides thoughtful answers to questions such as "What is generosity?" and "What motivates us to give?" An inspirational call to action, The Power of Generosity will strike a chord with all who want to fulfill a vital part of their humanity—the need to give.
