After retiring as CEO of Earth 2000 National, a 25,000 member environmental group he founded at the astonishing age of 12, Danny Seo continued to receive thousands of letters from young people asking, "How do you do it?" The result is this energized primer that shows would-be world changers all they need to get on with changing the world. What's more, it's easy to do! In Be the Difference, Danny shares his hard-won skills so you too can make a difference in your community. It includes how to: Start your own organization; Develop concrete strategies that really work Raise funds quickly and easily Get media exposure Change your schools Work with companies Make legislators listen And much more! Be the Difference is a clear, concise, and upbeat voice for change. What's more, its emphasis on social action for service and personal growth is unique. Written especially to appeal to teenagers, those at college, and women wanting to make a difference, it will also find a ready place in the back pockets of everyone wanting clever strategies and inspiring ideas for their own organizations.
