Descripción del libro
Imagine if the people living in extreme poverty were your next-door neighbor. How would that change things?
"If The Poor Were Next Door" is a short but compelling read. In about one hour, you will know my most intense life experiences and how they culminated in DonorSee.
These are the experiences that shaped who I am, what I believe and why I have devoted my life to serving the poorest half of the planet.
I do not hold back in this book. I don't sugarcoat any of the stories and I don't shy away from sharing my opinion. This is a redemptive book about some of the darkest moments of my life. Moments that have made me who I am.
When you are finished, you will put it down with a brand new, refreshed, inspired and open-minded perspective.
Fans of mine, people wanting to hear about adventures in Africa and people wanting to learn about global wealth disparity.

I like the way this cover further communicates the title of the book.
I like how sleek and professional this looks. Although the font is hard to read.
I like the combination of real life and animation in the background.
This is an example of an African hut.
This is an example of a nice Suburban house. It's not overly extravagant. Just a regular suburban household.
This is too simple but I do like how the cover further communicates the idea of the book.
I don't like the colors or font but the simplicity of the colors is really nice.

I have two ideas for a cover.
1) It looks like the front cover is torn down the middle. On the left side is a nice house that you would find in a suburban neighborhood with a beautiful green yard and blue sky. On the right side is an African hut with dust on the ground and an orange sky. It should be obvious that the left side is wealthy and the right side is poor.
2) The cover is of someone looking out a window. They are inside a beautiful suburban house and as they look out side they see a neighbor who is living in poverty in Africa.
I am also open to your ideas for a cover! It's important to me that the cover is striking, professional and sleek.
Lo que debe evitarse
I think I would prefer a custom illustration as opposed to use of stock images. But I am open to see what is made.
This will be the approximate size of the book (the number of pages might vary slightly).
I like how crisp and clean these photos look (screenshot from unsplash.com). I'm not saying I want real-life images. But the "feel" of them is nice.
