In the tradition of Little Princes and The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, the inspiring story of how Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow created the international charity, Mary's Meals, which now provides one million children in developing countries a daily meal in a place of learning.
After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia, the two brothers agreed to take a week's hiatus from work to help. What neither of them expected is that what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Land Rover rapidly grew to become Magnus's life's work--leading him to leave his job, sell his house, and direct all his efforts to feeding thousands of the world's poorest children. Magnus retells how a series of miraculous circumstances and an overwhelming display of love from those around him led to the creation of Mary's Meals; an organization that could hold the key to eradicating child hunger altogether. This humble, heart-warming yet powerful story has never been more relevant in our society of plenty and privilege. It will open your eyes to the extraordinary impact that one person can make.
