“You can measure the depth of people’s awakening by how they serve others.” This quotation by Kobo Daishi, the ninth-century Japanese Buddhist monk, is only one of many observations that fill this small volume with words of wisdom and compassion.

In her book Inspiring Generosity (Wisdom Publications, 2014), philanthropy expert Barbara Bonner explores the stories of fourteen individuals and how they were inspired to start their personal journey to give and to dedicate their lives to the act of generosity.
