The Good Life with Kevin Salwen and Hannah Salwen authors of "The Power of Half"
It all started when 14 year old Hannah Salwen had a "eureka moment". Seeing a homeless man in her neighborhood alongside a Mercedes, she said "You know, Dad, if that man had a less nice car, maybe that man there could have a meal." Until that day the Salwen's had been caught up in the American Dream: providing a good life for their children, accumulating more stuff. As a family they made the extraordinary decision to sell their Atlanta mansion, downsize to a house half the size and give half the profit to a worthy charity. Their plan eventually transported them across the globe and well out of their comfort zone, and in the end they learned that they had the power to change a little corner of their world. And they found themselves changing, too.
Kevin Salwen was a reporter and editor at the Wall Street Journal for more than 18 years and a founder of the magazine Motto. He serves on the board of Habitat for Humanity. Hannah Salwen is a junior at the Atlanta Girl's School, where she plays for the varsity volleyball team. Hannah has volunteered since 5th grade at the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Cafe 458.
