Summary
It all started when 14-year old Hannah Salwen, idealistic but troubled by a growing sense of injustice, had a eureka moment when she saw a homeless man juxtaposed against a glistening Mercedes coupe. "You know, Dad," she said, "If that man had a less nice car, that man there could have a meal." This glaring led the Salwen family of four, caught up like so many other Americans in this age of consumption and waste, to follow Hannah's urge to do something--so they embarked on an incredible journey together. They decided to sell their Atlanta mansion, buy a house half its size, and give half their profits to charity. At first it was an outlandish scheme, then it became a challenge: "We are TOTALLY doing this." Each week they met over dinner to discuss their plan--which would transport them across the globe and well out of their comfort zone, and bring them closer as a family.--From publisher description
