About the Book

A beautifully written memoir of a year dedicated to charitable giving, 60:60 Celebrating Sixty Years with Sixty Acts of Kindness is not only an account of Mahvash Yazdi's pursuit of a 60th birthday goal to accomplish 60 acts of kindness in one year; it is also the account of the journey of an Iranian woman who escaped the Revolution and, through both hard work and determination as well as the acts of kindness bestowed upon her by others, was able to carve out a rich, successful, and ultimately meaningful life for herself. Her story is personal yet universal; it is a story that will resonate with anyone who has grown up, left home, and fallen on hard times. Above all, it speaks to the importance of giving back to the greater community to one's own growth, success, and wellbeing, told through an engaging and fascinating personal history. It is not just a memoir but a celebration of one of humanity's most tremendous assets: kindness, and a testament to the fact that giving to others can be the greatest gift one can ever give oneself.
