Read full description of the books:
Who are the new philanthropists? And how is their philanthropy "new?"
In this inspiring book, eminent management writer and Britain's biggest business guru Charles Handy and his wife Elizabeth, a portrait photographer, have collaborated to portray a new generation of practical philanthropists—men and women who have made their own fortunes and decided to move on from financial success to try to help those in need. They are doing so not simply by giving their money away to charities and agencies but by helping actively, working on the spot with the very people who need their aid, ensuring that the initiatives are sustainable in the longer term. As in their acclaimed The New Alchemists, the Handys have both interviewed and photographed their subjects in order to tell their inspiring stories; from the Sydney restaurateur Jeff Gambin, who personally helps to cook hot and cold menus for homeless people, to Niall Mellon, a young Irish property developer who is replacing shacks in a South African township with breeze-block homes, and Sara Davenport, who sold her art gallery and set up a breast-cancer care center—the Haven Trust—to offer integrated, holistic treatment and support.
