Product Description

Review

"[Bilaal] is humble, smart, hardworking, respectful and an example both to adults and children alike... although the book focuses on guiding youth in their fundraising efforts, adults could also learn much." (CM Magazine 2008-09-01)

"With the ideas and advice [Bilaal] gives, almost any child could have similar achievements for a worthwhile cause - as long as it is one the child truly cares about." (Hi-Rise 2008-10-01)

"This young Canadian is supremely committed to causes of world hunger and environment and to achieving all that he can be." (Resource Links 2008-12-01)

"Clearly, Rajan is an exceptional teen and has much to offer the world." (School Library Journal 2009-02-01)

"Part personal odyssey and part motivational guide..., this book's strength is its realistic approach to charitable work." (VOYA 2009-04-01)

"Fundraising Bilaal's way is a creative and organized endeavour that will enable groups to promote team building and school spirit, all while making a positive difference to the lives of others. This book would be a valuable resource in any school library. Recommended." (The Bookmark (BCTLA) 2009-02-01)

"Remarkable and encouraging." (Light of Consciousness magazine 2010-03-01)

"Fundraising can be fun!? Any doubts young people might have about starting small and thinking big are set aside in this book by UNICEF Canada Child representative...The book reads as a motivational testament, with enough how-to help students embarking on service projects of their own. It could be useful in upper elementary, middle and high school business and social service units." (Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media 2010-01-01)

Format:Paperback
I truly enjoyed reading this book. The book opens with a famous quotation made by the Aga Khan at the foundation stone ceremony for the Versova social housing project in Mumbai, India, in the 1980's:

"There are those who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot. Unless they can be touched with the spark which ignites the spirit of individual enterprise and determination, they will only sink into apathy, degradation and despair. It is for us, who are more fortunate, to provide that spark."

I was fortunate to be able to visit the Versova project and it is remarkable that the quotation made by the Aga Khan continues to inspire so many to this day. It is especially fortunate for the ultra poor of the world that the quote has captured the imagination of the young determined 12 year old author.

As a UNICEF Canada Child Representative, Bilaal has inspired thousands of Canadians to get involved in helping children in the developing world to have a better life. The book has a straightforward message on how to become an activist in fighting global poverty. It has many practical and really good tips. He encourages you to think big, visualize success, and realize that goals can be achieved. Also, success builds confidence and further success!

I highly recommend the book, especially for parents with pre-teen and teenage children.
