I didn't write THE POWER OF THE INVISIBLE SUN to sit on your coffee table and look good. I wrote it to stimulate people's thinking about how to live a more connected and impactful life.

I met the children in this book while traveling around the world with my family over the past ten years and devoting myself to philanthropy. I came face-to-face with them because I was there to help, and that's a big part of the connection you see in their eyes.

I chose to only use the images of children because it is through the strength and possibilities you see in their young eyes that the power of the invisible sun can become so compelling. I wanted you to see what I see. Feel what I feel. Have your hearts opened up in new ways.

At the end of the book I ask the question NOW WHAT? And it's my hope that by the time you reach the end of the book, you'll be compelled to answer it. To do something. Anything. Because that's the point. I don't want you to feel sorry for them and want to give them a hug. Just the opposite. I want you to take strength from their strength, feel more thankful in your own life, and in return, go find ways to give others hope - not just by giving money, but by giving something of yourself.

Everyone has to connect their own dots. I hope the experience of this book, in some small way, helps you to connect yours.
