This is the story of RESULTS, a NON-partisan grassroots, citizens lobbying group that fights hunger, poverty and death due to preventable disease by learning how to successfully create relationships with members of Congress and the media. They have helped the Child Survival fund come into being and grow to $600 million, and have seen a drop in infant mortality and increases in immunizations. They work on global and domestic issues, and are now promoting microenterprise lending to poor families, mostly to women. The results of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, and other microenterprise projects in the U.S. and abroad have been remarkable. And these are "everyday" people... teachers, moms, workers, students...very moving book!!!
