Handmade treasures offer hope
Margie recruited her friends, mother and mother’s friends to join her in knitting blankets for women at a local shelter. The collaborative gesture aimed to give women comfort and something to call their own. With each blanket, knitters attached a note of support. The personal gifts not only moved their recipients, they also gave Margie and team a sense of pride.

Small steps, powerful outcomes
The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Barbara Greenspan Shaiman, founder, shows us that each individual can influence change. In 1995, she founded Champions of Caring, a non-profit organization that empowered more than 10,000 youth in Philadelphia and South Africa to become leaders in public service and active, engaged citizens.
Barbara is author of two books, including Live Your Legacy Now: Ten Simple Steps to Find Your Passion and Change the World. With 30+ years of public speaking experience, Barbara partners with many types of organizations to promote a universal message, inspire and build skill sets of audiences motivated to address local and global issues. Given that $30 trillion is estimated to be transferred to younger generations within the decade, she emphasizes the importance of passing on one’s values and life’s lessons with wealth. Energetic delivery and influential messaging resonate with multiple generations and help to create cultures of caring.

– Lyndon B. Johnson
