Last year I was very fortunate to be involved in a very small way, with the creation of this amazing book of inspirational quotes, “The Book Of Giving”.

The Book of Giving

This little pink book of quotes about life, love, family and friendship was created by entrepreneur, Gabby Cox with a little help from a network of family, friends and businesses who donated their time and resources.  My role was simple, I retouched the image of that gorgeous chandelier on the front cover.

So what is special about this book you ask?  “The purchase of The book of Giving, enables women in poverty to establish the ‘business of their dreams’.  All profits received will be distributed via microfinance loans enabling these women with an entrepreneurial spirit a new beginning and a brighter future.”

100% of profits from the sale of The Book of Giving are forwarded to Good Return,  an online social enterprise that combines the latest technology with innovative marketing to allow Australians to make a real and lasting difference to the extreme poor in the Asia Pacific  region.



“I believe the giving and receiving of books to be two-fold: the joy and love felt when giving the gift, and the joy and love felt when received. However, the funds raised from this book add a new fold and perhaps this has the greatest reward of all: spirited women achieving their dreams by receiving a microfinance loan through Good Return.” *Gabby Cox

If you are still searching for a Mother’s Day gift or even something special for yourself, consider purchasing one of these gorgeous little books.  The words within will brighten your day and the donation to Good Return will make a lasting difference to the life of a woman and her family.
