$190 Billion was contributed to nonprofit (social profit) organizations in 1999 and of this amount 85% came from individuals. Each of us can contribute to creating a better world that works for everyone, to make a difference and serve something larger than ourselves. "If your fundraising is consistent with your mission and in a way that is an expression of your mission, you will have all the money that you need." These are words of wisdom from Lynne Twist, co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance. Delve into an hour of heart-tugging, illuminating stories from Twist about her experiences in Ethiopia to Harlem to the Amazon Rainforest. Twist shares the power and pleasure of giving authentically and soulfully. "A great fundraiser needs to know that it is not the amount of money you receive but the relationship the donor has to that money that gives that money power." (hosted by Michael Toms)


Twist is a member of the board of directors of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, serves on the John E. Fetzer Institute Board and is a founding executive of The Hunger Project.
