Craig and Marc Kielburger, founders of Me to We and Free the Children, have released a new book, My Grandma Follows Me On Twitter… And Other First World Problems We’re Lucky To Have. The book is a compilation of “first world problems” heard too often in our western society. And for each trifling tribulation, the Kielburgers offer suggestions for correlating actions that can make a difference. Craig and Marc provide their own perspective and insight and encourage readers to think about their “problems” in a different way.
For every sale of the book, Me to We will donate a notebook to a child in a developing country and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Free the Children so that they can continue their international charity work. Complaining will never feel this good.
