The first and only book to blow the whistle on wasted contributions,
Don’t Just Give It Away
shows readers how to tune out fundraising hype and make their donations to charity really count.

Renata Rafferty has come through with a book people of all income levels should possess for it is a book about fostering change in society as much as it is a guide to charitable giving. No matter how much we give or how often, we should all be concerned with where the money goes and how it gets used.

Don’t Just Give It Away provides us with the knowledge to make wise decisions with our money. This is one of the best investments you can make.

Learn all the elements of giving money to charity wisely and sanely in this valuable new guide.
