'Dillon channels the heart cry of a generation who want to live lives of meaning and hope, but don't know how. With an artist's craft, he draws the reader in through stories of everyday people who have found a way to live their soul dream. He invites us to consider how in giving we will gain, and to join a global tribe of doers, not talkers.' * Jacqueline Fuller, president of Google.org and Google Foundation *
