According to UNICEF, every three seconds, someone dies of extreme poverty—usually the victim is a child, and typically the cause is a preventable disease. Daniel Karslake tells the unforgettable stories of five regular folks—a boy, a college student, a thirty-something, and two seniors—whose lives went from ordinary to extraordinary based on one simple decision—to engage. Each chose action over apathy, and in the process, each one has had a significant and lasting impact on two of the most challenging, yet solvable, issues of our time: hunger and extreme poverty. Every Three Seconds is about doing well by doing good – about changing the world and changing one’s own life in the process.
