The Joan Kenley Show

Listen to the Show

Originally, giving a gift meant sharing something special that was reflective of your personal talents. Today, giving something special can mean selecting a gift as an expression of your personal commitments or philosophy. Over the past decade, there has been a surge in companies and products that are better for the environment and more advantageous for those who create the gifts. What giving offers those who give, is expressed by Maya Angelou: "I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver."

In this program you'll hear about:
