At age thirty-five, Cami Walker was burdened by a battle with multiple sclerosis, a chronic neurological condition that made it difficult for her to walk, work, or enjoy her life. Seeking a remedy for her depression after being hospitalized, she received an uncommon prescription from an African medicine woman: give to others for 29 days.

29 Gifts is the insightful story of the author’s life change as she embraces and reflects on the naturally reciprocal process of giving and receiving. Many of Walker’s gifts were simple—a phone call, spare change, a Kleenex. Yet the acts were transformative. By day 29, not only had Walker’s health and happiness improved, but she had created a worldwide giving movement.

The book also includes personal essays from others whose lives changed for the better by giving, plus pages for the reader to record their own journey. More than a memoir, 29 Gifts offers inspiring lessons on how a simple daily practice of altruism can dramatically alter your outlook on the world.

    " The author is challenged to give a gift everyday for 29 days. When she begins the project, she is struggling with her life. She is operating out of a place of scarcity. This project moves her to see the abundance in her life. I recommend this book and the project to anyone in need of a new view on life. "

    " This book I'm sure inspired many people to start their own giving projects. In 29 Gifts, Cami Walker discovers the inherent power of gift-giving. It really is in giving that your heart is open and receptive to receiving from others. She challenges the reader to give despite all the excuses of financial hardship, lack of want/time. It is through her giving cycle that she is able to face her M.S. symptoms. I've read this book several times, and have incorporated a month of giving into my own lifestyle "
