Whenever anyone says, “What can I do? I’m only one person,” I remind them of Gandhi’s insistence that personal change and the ability to bring about social change are linked. It starts at home with you. That is the essence of his often repeated quote: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” For him, it wasn’t a trite statement; it was a responsibility of the living. The PWR – Purpose With Results philosophy is based on discovering your own Life Purpose and then inspiring others through it. That’s how each and every person can make a difference in this world because we each have a unique gift to share. The power of one is the power to inspire many and start a chain reaction of good. The goal of this section is to share ideas about how to get involved, from links to find volunteer opportunities, donate or make a micro-loan, to resources for starting your own social enterprise or expanding your company’s corporate responsiblity activities. There are many ways to get involved.
