GIVING is LIVING

Inspired by visits to his dying professor Morrie Schwartz – who told him “Giving is living” – author Mitch Albom began to form charities in the mid-1990s. Today, there are eight independent efforts, helping those who need it most.

Please use this site to learn about each charity, view videos, and catch up on the latest updates. And thank you for sharing Mitch and Morrie’s belief that we truly are all connected, and that in helping others, we help ourselves.

Founded by Mitch Albom  &  Operated in Partnership with Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries
