The Power of Half: One Family’s Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back

Co-sponsored by The Hunger Project


The Salwens were a typical family caught up in pursuing the American Dream – providing a good life for their children, accumulating more and more stuff, doing their part, but not really feeling it, until 14-year old Hannah Salwen spotted a homeless man alongside a glistening Mercedes.  Her subsequent epiphany inspired the Salwens to sell their spacious Atlanta home and donate half of the proceeds to a worthy charity. In the process, they hoped to make the world better in some small way, never expecting how much they would gain from the experience. This event is co-sponsored by The Hunger Project, a global non-profit committed to the sustainable end to world hunger.
