Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World

book by Bill Clinton

Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World is a 2007 book by former United States President Bill Clinton. It was published by Knopf in September 2007. With an initial print run of 750,000 copies, it debuted at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list in its first week. It was announced that an unspecified portion of proceeds would go to causes mentioned in the book. Clinton ultimately donated $1 million of the proceeds to charity. At the time the book was released, his wife the then junior United States Senator from New York Hillary Rodham Clinton, was seeking the Democratic nomination for President. Peter Baker, writing a review for the Washington Post, described it as Bill Clinton's version of his wife's 1996 book It Takes a Village. The book details efforts funded by the Clinton Foundation or which Clinton otherwise admires, with a message encouraging readers to join in. The book mentions the charity work of well-known people like Oprah Winfrey, Andre Agassi, and Warren Buffett, why each chooses to do it, and also mentions lesser known instances of charity. The book can be used as a guide for fundraising by the NGO and INGO activists.
