Maggie Doyne is the author of the new book, Between the Mountain and the Sky: a mother’s story of love, loss, healing, and hope. Maggie has dedicated her life to educating children and empowering women. At age 19, Maggie used her life savings to build a home for orphaned children in war-ravaged Nepal. Maggie was named 2015 CNN Hero of the Year. She was honored by the Dalai Lama as an Unsung Hero of Compassion in 2014. Her work was championed by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Nicholas Kristof in a cover story for The New York Times Magazine. While Maggie’s work is focused on Nepal, she speaks all over the world in the hope of inspiring others to start projects of their own that will generate positive change.
In the blink of an eye, we can all make a difference. What does it take to start projects that will generate positive change? Goodness is possible when a single person--regardless of age--takes action to help another and, in the process, changes the lives of hundreds.
