One month after her wedding day, thirty-three-year-old Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and the life she knew changed forever. Cami was soon in and out of L.A.s emergency rooms with alarming frequency as she battled the neurological condition that left her barely able to walk and put enormous stress on her marriage. Each day brought new negative thoughts: Im going to end up in a wheelchair. Marks probably going to leave me. My life is over. Why did this have to happen to me? Then, as a remedy for her condition, Cami received an uncommon prescription from a friend, an African medicine woman named Mbali Creazzo: Give away 29 gifts in 29 days. By giving, Mbali told her, you are focusing on what you have to offer others, inviting more abundance into your life. The gifts, she said, could be anything, but their giving had to be both authentic and mindful. At least one gift needed to be something she felt was scarce in her life. 29 Gifts is Camis poignant and unforgettable story of embracing the natural process of giving and receiving. Many of her gifts were simplea phone call, spare change, even a Kleenex. Yet the acts of kindness were transformative. By Day 29, not only had her health and happiness turned around, but she had also embarked on creating a worldwide giving movement. Including personal essays from members of the 29 Gifts.org online community whose lives changed for the better after taking the Challenge, 29 Gifts shows just how a simple, daily practice of altruism can dramatically alter your outlook on the world.
