Praise for The Busy Family's Guide to Volunteering:
"Both inspiring and realistic, this comprehensive guide shows families how to get involved in their communities, for the betterment of others and the shared pleasure of doing something good. This book is full of ideas and resources to make tiptoeing into volunteerism an enjoyable part of your family life."
--National Parenting Publications
"Here's an incentive to help us guide our children and ourselves."
--Vicky Lansky, best-selling author and parenting consultant
"This book will be a trusted resource for all families that wish to make a difference in their community. I encourage families to utilize this book and the suggestions it features."
--Peter B. Goldberg, President and CEO of the Alliance for Children and Families
"We distributed approximately 2 billion pounds of food to 23 million Americans last year. To accomplish this, we depend on a network of 58,000 social service organizations and one million volunteers. This book provides an efficient understanding of how individuals and families can find the best fit and volunteer opportunity. Without the support of a very large number of new volunteers we cannot end hunger in America."
--Robert Forney, President and CEO of America's Second Harvest
"This book is overflowing with ideas for family volunteers, as well as the detailed contact information necessary to get you going. As Ms. Friedman states in her introduction, 'Each time we volunteer, we have an opportunity to teach our children that every human being has worth, that we are stewards of this planet, that the world is a better place when we care for others and they care for us.'"
