product description

It is said that the true purpose of life is the joy of helping others, but there is often a perception that the next generation is not as committed to changing the world as their parents were. However, in Why Not Me?, 15-year-old author Allyson Vanek shows that selflessly giving is a joy that knows no age limitations.

From Philadelphia to Pakiston, Allyson shares amazing stories of young people who are making a difference in their communities…and in the world.

Why Not Me? changes the stereotypical vision of teenagers from being “selfish” to “being selfless.” Though this inspirational book, Allyson challenges everyone, but especially young people, to ask “Why Not Me?” when it comes to having an impact on the lives of others.

This book will make you feel great about our next generation.

      Bought this for a gift - would have been more appropriate for a younger person.
