The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Kristine Carlson and Ron Carter.
When Dr. Carlson first published those words two decades ago, he probably had no idea the impact it would have on the fate of children, families, and communities all around the globe. One of the most impactful and visionary self-help books of the last generation – with over 25 million copies sold and considered a key text in the global movement towards mindfulness and self-care – Carlson’s shout-out to Children Incorporated resulted in a flood of sponsors that organization president Ron Carter calls “one of the most meaningful things to ever happen to our organization.”
Dr. Carlson’s legacy is continued by his widow, Kristine Carlson, herself a best-selling author, TED Talk veteran, and internationally acclaimed speaker. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, Carlson has teamed up with Children Incorporated to generate 2000 new sponsors in conjunction with the book’s reissue.
With programs in over 23 countries (including nearly 150 in the United States), Children Incorporated connects individual donors with the needs of specific children who are in desperate need – of food, shelter, clothing, school supplies, and most of all, human generosity. Since being founded by Jeanne Clarke Wood in 1964, the Richmond, VA-based organization has directly impacted the lives of over 250,000 children.
