"We received the books. They are just lovely, thank you."

"Sheree: We received the books yesterday. We're so excited to have found these books to use as a courtesy gift for our donors. They embody the spirit of what is most important in philanthropy. Thanks again for your quick and attentive service."
- Nancy DeWeese, Kansas State University Foundation

According to Milton Murray, "One of the best things about 'Living a Life of Significance' is that it speaks to all of us. And it is not only an affirmation -- it's a teaching tool, an encouraging word -- it's a very creative way to say 'We appreciate you'."

"Please contact me at the same time next year. I want to order the next book for my volunteers."

"We would like to increase our order this year."
