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.

This amazing new series, The Good Life, has been created by Kim Ricketts/Book Events and The Warren Report, and is supported by sponsorship from Bastyr University, Tom Douglas Restaurants, Seattle's Child, Theo Chocolate, Conscious Choice/Seattle and Lush Life Floral.
