For three decades, Orchard client Harvey McKinnon has been one of Canada’s top charitable fundraisers. Author, documentary filmmaker, and motivational speaker, he’s helped generate hundreds of millions of dollars for nonprofits like UNICEF and Amnesty International.

In his new book, The Power of Giving: How Giving Back Enriches Us All (Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin), McKinnon and his co-author, Azim Jamal, discuss how individuals who give of their time and money often enjoy better health. It helps build relationships, which can lead to fewer medical problems.
Regular volunteer work, for example, is found to increase life expectancy, enhance the immune system, lower cholesterol levels, strengthen the heart, and reduce both stress and chest pain. It offers interpersonal connections that make it easier to find meaningful jobs and romantic partners.Custom Inflatables
