Mumbai (November 11, 2016): Carrie Morgridge, an American philanthropist and Vice President of the Morgridge Family Foundation, makes her debut in India through Every Gift Matters in 5 major cities – New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Bangalore and Mumbai. Sharing inspiring stories of powerful gifts in action, she explains in her book how to turn the act of giving into a vehicle for positive change. The book was launched by Shaina Nana Chudasama, BJP leader and JD Majethia, director & producer along with film director, Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra at Comedy Club.
In her book Every Gift Matters: How Your Passion Can Change the World, Carrie Morgridge argues that philanthropy isn’t about writing a check; it’s about the value we create when we invest in local communities, follow our principles, and make a lasting difference.
Talking at her debut book launch in New Delhi, Carrie Morgridge said, “The smallest donation on the planet can transform a life – I have this first hand. And, the best part is, it transforms two lives: the one who receives and the one who gives. Through my book Every Gift Matters, I have shared real-life stories of how having a hands-on approach to giving has transformed lives including my own. I believe that anyone and everyone can make a difference in their community, no matter what the size of the gift. The first step is believing you can – are you ready to change the world?”
This initiative to bring Carrie Morgridge to India is organized by Amitabh Shah, Founder & Chief Inspiration Office, YUVA Unstoppable. YUVA Unstoppable is a youth movement, which has mobilized over 150,000 volunteers to benefit over 400,000 underprivileged children across 30 cities of India.
