Christmas Past

The sweetest memories are contained in this photo of me and my sister, one Christmas morning. What a wild and wonderful flashback!

Chistmas Past

Children must early learn the beauty of generosity. They are taught to give what they prize most that they may taste the happiness of giving. — Ohiyesa

Five Things

Below are five things you can do to help us publicize Giving Back: A Tribute to Generations of African American Philanthropists, the 400-page hardcover book that reframes portraits of philanthropy.

  1. Post a book review on Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble
  2. Follow us on Twitter @valaidaf and @sankofaphotog
  3. Ask a local library or bookstore to carry Giving Back (ISBN: 978-0-89587-564-8)
  4. Tell a friend about Giving Back
  5. Give the book as a gift to children, friends and family…particularly with Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon

Giving Back aims to ignite a movement of conscientious philanthropy by empowering a generation to recognize their power and responsibility to give back.

Every book purchased keeps giving, since proceeds benefit philanthropic causes—and since the stories inspire readers to give.

Thank you!
