Change in a Heartbeat

You may know them as the adoptive parents of Michael Oher (offensive tackle for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, author of I Beat the Odds: from homelessness to the Blind Side and beyond [New York: Gotham Books, 2011], and subject of Michael Lewis’s book The Blind Side: evolution of a game [New York: W. W. Norton, 2006]), but Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy have a fascinating story of their own, which they tell in their book In a Heartbeat: sharing the power of cheerful giving (New York: Henry and Holt Co., 2010). While they do talk about Michael Oher, their story is more about why giving is important and how you can make a big difference to others, no matter how small you may think your contribution may be.
