Girlfriend Celebrations - Because Girlfriends Make Life Better

Sunday’s Giveaway Will Inspire You

[Congratulations to Zoe Benfeld] Today’s giveaway is a great read for any girlfriend who likes to feel inspired. One Can Make a Difference: Original stories by the Dali Lama, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Dennis Kucinch, Russel Simmons, Bridgitte Bardot, Martina … Dozens of Other Extraordinary Individuals by PETA Founder Ingrid Newkirk is a fabulous inspirational read. Newkirk interviewed 50 individuals—some famous, some not-so-famous—who have made a positive impact on the world. While some of the stories have to do with the well-being of animals, some are simply tales of impressive accomplishments by determined people. As you read their stories, you will be inspired to see what you can accomplish. As Newkirk writes, “This book illustrates (a) that even those we admire from afar invariably face obstacles and have to find ways to keep their belief alive and (b) that you don’t have to be a household name to make a difference … you just need to have conviction.” The short chapters lend themselves to mini reading sessions. Read more about the book here, at the PETA site. If you need inspiration, then you need to enter this giveaway! Good luck.

  2. Conviction and purpose are two of the most important ‘things’ a person can have. This is a great book choice for anyone.
