The Kindness Effect By Jill Donovan

What if you had the power to rewrite a line in someone's chapter?

In 2004, Jill Donovan's guest appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show ignited a change within her heart that would have a ripple effect on thousands of lives.

Now, with her own nationally known jewelry business, Donovan knows a thing or two about the power in passing gifts from one person to another.

This is not a how-to-guide on exercising kindness. It is also not just the story of Donovan's business, Rustic Cuff. This book shows what happens when you give generously to others, pursue your dreams and never give up.

For Rustic Cuff creator Jill Donovan, it's not about the bracelet. It's about the connection that is made between two people in gift giving. Within the pages of this book are the experiences that inspired her most popular bracelets, now worn by celebrities such as Miranda Lambert, Gayle King, and Kristin Chenowith. The Kindness Effect gives you a glimpse into how this practicing attorney transformed her handmade cuffs into a flourishing business. Now a sought-after motivational speaker who encourages women to pursue their passions, Donovan often recites her favorite quote: "Don't compare your chapter 1 with someone else's chapter 20." Be inspired by this regifting movement, and discover the power in generous giving for a fulfilling journey through life.

Jill Donovan was born in Baltimore, Maryland; was raised in Pensacola, Florida; and graduated from Oral Roberts University, in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she met her husband, Terry. She went on to get her law degree from the University of Tulsa and was a practicing attorney and adjunct law professor at TU law school when Rustic Cuff was born. She taught herself how to make cuffs and gifted them to friends and family. Today, Rustic Cuff jewelry is sold in more than 250 stores across the country. The brand has been featured on many national TV shows including Good Morning America, The Today Show, E! News and The View. When not working, Donovan enjoys spending time with her daughter’s, Ireland 13, and Peanut, 9.

As someone who is always giving, I think this was a book worth reading and sharing.
 It is a biblically sound book and has tons of  great information in it.
Pick up and extra copy to GIVE to someone you love.
