Me to We

by Marc Kielburger and Craig Kielburger | Simon & Schuster © 2006 · 320 pages

Craig and Marc Kielburger are simply extraordinary human beings who, from a remarkably young age, dedicated their lives to making a huge difference in the world. This book is a manifesto on how to go from Me to We as we commit to living for something bigger than ourselves. In the Note, we explore Big Ideas ranging from classic Greek ideas about happiness to closing the gap between principle and practice. Super inspiring and transformative.

We have written this book because we have seen what is possible: one small step of kindness contributes to one large step for humankind.
Craig & Marc Kielburger

“Me to We is about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It is about liberating the mind from the world’s injustices and serving as an example to others. Action is never easy. It takes courage and insight, but its rewards are transformative: stronger families, supportive communities, more ethical places of work and business, greater connections with others and with our values, and a heightened sense of life purpose and happiness. With every new act, Me to We gains strength. Although we may not reach the end of this thousand-mile journey in our lifetime, as Lao Tzu declared, we have to take the first step. With each word, act, and helping hand, we make the world a more just and compassionate place. The adventure has already begun, and it will continue when you put down this book and move from thought to action.

Be the change.”

~ Craig & Marc Kielburger from Me to We: Finding Meaning in a Material World

Craig and Marc Kielburger are two AMAZING brothers making a huge difference in the world.

At the age of 12 (!), Craig read a newspaper article about the murder of a former Pakistani child slave and was so moved he started a non-profit with his then 18-year old brother Marc (who is now a Harvard graduate and a Rhodes Scholar with a law degree from Oxford University) called “Free the Children” which has now helped create over 500 schools and is active in over 45 countries.

The two are seriously incredible and this book is packed with Big Ideas and inspirational stories on how we can move from “Me to We.” I highly recommend it! For now, let’s jump in!
