His Name Is Today: Bob Macauley And Americares
This is the heartwarming, often thrilling story of Bob Macauley and AmeriCares, the largest private disaster relief organization in the world.A born entrepreneur and fearless philanthropist, Macauley operates with a rare sense of urgency and efficiency. Routinely the first to arrive at the scene of a disaster anywhere in America or abroad, AmeriCares has delivered close to $5 billion of aid to more than 137 countries.The early arrival of food, medicine and other assistance has saved millions of lives over the past two decades, in places like Poland, Chernobyl, Sarajevo, Sudan, Rwanda, at many of Mother Teresa's missions around the world, and most recently for tsunami victims in Southeast Asia.The book's tales of miraculous rescues, feats of derring-do, poignant accounts of orphans and other children in dire need, complement the narrative story of a great man and his philosophy of life. Macauley demonstrates in word and deed what humans owe one another in a strife- and disaster-torn world -- in his words, "The only thing that is going to save the world is love."
