Magnus’s first book was a humble yet heart-warming look at the impact of Mary’s Meals, and how it transformed the lives of over a million children throughout the world. It sat firmly within the ‘inspirational memoir’ genre and told the extraordinary story of how Mary’s Meals was established.

Many see charitable organisations and initiatives as hopelessly ineffective, old fashioned and even corrupt. Most recently, well known international aid organisations have been rocked by scandals. But running parallel to this, people all over the world are engaged in a multitude of charitable activities.

Magnus will recount personal encounters that he has had with startling acts of charity in many different cultures and situations. These deeply moving stories will illuminate the beauty of giving and the life changing impact these acts of charity have upon the giver and receiver, as well as the truth that these acts of sharing – and even sacrifice – are an intrinsic part of what it means to be human.

Magnus will then explore how those of us with the responsibility of organising charitable initiatives should go about this work in a way that elevates rather than denigrates the place of charity within society.

This book will be permeated by stories of faith in action and will draw on Catholic Social Teaching and the Gospel message. It is written in a way that is accessible to all, regardless of what your belief.
