Crowdfunding for Social Good

Good Citizen Authors Book, Seeks Crowdfunding

Brad Jamison is the founder of Good Citizen and the author of Soul Serving. He is raising money on Kickstarter. Recently, I caught up with Brad to learn more about the effort; here’s what he told me:

What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?

This beautiful book will take readers on an inspirational journey into the life-changing benefits of serving others. Think Chicken Soup for the Soul, but with stories focused on how serving others impacted their lives.

These are my firsthand accounts, as well as the personal stories of some 40+ other people of various ages and walks of life — celebrities, business executives, nonprofit leaders and everyday good citizens. Whether you are a consummate volunteer or thinking of starting, young or old, male or female, gay or straight, you are bound to find a story that resonates and inspires you.

I am a firm believer that the secret to improving one’s own life lies in offering oneself to others. Of course, the benefits don’t stop there, as service impacts those directly involved, but also the world at large—making service the ultimate win-win and Soul Serving the ultimate inspiration.
