One friend, Micheal Zislis, owner of The Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach, responded to that request with an order for enough copies of the book for each of his hotel rooms. I was, of course, grateful beyond words for such a generous gesture of support.
Then yesterday I was able to experience the wonderful feeling of good deeds multiplying. Here is what happened. I received an order for a book through Amazon. I noticed that the purchaser was actually ordering the book as a gift. I wrote an email to thank the purchaser. This was the message I received back:
Did a dream come true? Yes. My dream for the Don’t Dieseries has always been for books to be read, inspiring the reader to take action, and then pass the book along. An additional dream I have had was for companies to use the books to promote their businesses – each time a customer sees the book they remember the great experience they had with the company that gave them the book. Until now that latter part was just a dream. I believed it was doable, but had no proof. Now the dream of using Don’tDie books to promote good companies has become a reality.
