Your Mark On The World combines inspiring stories of ordinary people doing remarkable things to make the world a better place with practical advice to empower anyone to give more to a cause (charity, non-profit or social venture) without giving up a career or family. The inspiring stories include: Botevy's life and death struggle through Pol Pot's killing fields that led her ultimately to create an orphanage in Phnom Penh. Rick's personal crusade to cure cystic fibrosis to ensure that his two afflicted grandchildren will attend his funeral and not the other way around. The eight-member Smith family's world service tour. David's decision to walk away from a successful career as an international executive to volunteer to care for victims of leprosy in rural India. These stories are combined with practical financial advice to empower you to give more to a cause without giving up your family or your career. The book answers your questions: How do I get out of debt and stay out of debt? Which charity or cause do I choose to make my donation? How do I decide where to volunteer? How can our family plan a volunteer vacation? How can I save money for retirement? How much should I contribute to my 401k? Can I use Mint to manage my budget? How to retire early enough to devote healthy years to volunteering? This must-read book provides an overview of philanthropy in America and around the world, providing you with a clear picture of charity and its fruits.

About the Author

Thorpe wrote Your Mark On The World while working as a professor of business in China, providing a transition from his successful corporate career to a life more focused on humanitarian service. Previously, he served as the Chief Financial Officer for a multinational corporation and as the treasurer of Nasdaq-listed multinational. His other experience included seven years of operating his own boutique investment bank and financial advisory business, and a time as the owner and manager of a mortgage company. He earned an MBA at Cornell University after spending two years on the staff of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee. Devin's passion for volunteering was born at age eleven while shoveling mud out of a stranger's flooded home.
