    Young philanthropist Leman created a national stir when she organized a Halloween campaign that raised $10 million for Hurricane Katrina victims. Now, at 17, she leads an organization that harnesses the creative gifting power of 12-million children on four continents. In this guide to fostering positive changes in the world in big and little ways, she uses cartoons; short, punchy paragraphs; and a casual tone to present the highlights of her fund-raising success while discussing the stories of many others who have worked in a similar manner. With its breezy style, Leman's book serves as both a pep rally for budding philanthropists and a fun source of inspiration for those working with teen groups. Leman offers plenty of examples of how to get the ball rolling, and it's clear that a positive attitude is her secret weapon for achieving success. Although not a source for serious data about organizing charitable groups, this is an excellent motivator for young people who want to do good. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
