Inspired by the vision, spirit, and activities of thousands of kids working to improve the lives of others, Take Action! shows how you, too, can change the world. Authors Marc Kielburger and Craig Kielburger are the founders of Leaders Today, an organization dedicated to helping young people realize their fullest potential and become socially involved. Their remarkable work has been profiled on Oprah and on many national news shows, as well as in magazines and newspapers across the U.S. and Canada. Now, with Take Action!, they provide easy-to-follow guidelines for making a difference in the lives of people all over the globe.

By following the valuable tips, strategies, and examples in this book, you’ll get organized and start tackling important issues in your community, your school, your country, and around the world. From writing letters and public speaking to planning fundraisers, preparing petitions, and working with the media, Take Action! covers all the basics of how to become socially involved–and have fun at the same time! You’ll discover how you and your friends can join the fight for children’s rights, get involved in environmental issues, help those suffering from hunger and poverty, and much more. You’ll also meet other extraordinary young people like yourself who turned their thoughts and passion into action and have made a tremendous impact on these issues.

There are no limits to what you can accomplish. You can be a leader and help others today–all you have to do is Take Action!

Inspiring Book Nov. 21 2004
By Virginia Allain - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm looking forward to reading this book after seeing what it inspired locally. A local woman set up a project after reading this book. The project, called Give-A-Kid-A-Backpack, collects gently used backpacks and supplies to fill them, then gives them to needy children in Ecuador.

Any book that can get that kind of activism going must be remarkable.
