Getting a crazy idea to do something completely out of the box, Keith Maginn and his friend, Emily, plan a road trip through the southern United States. Their memoirs from the planning, the trip and feedback from the results are chronicled in Goodwill Tour: Paying It Forward, written by Keith Maginn. Emily, having done an excellent job at promoting Keith’s book, seemed like a wonderful person to help organize and carry out a trip that just kind of fell into place. As they toured the southeastern states, they talked about the people they encountered and the things that they experienced as they enjoyed an unforgettable fifteen-day trip. Along the way, they gave money to people who seemed to be deserving and would be likely candidates for paying it forward and continuing a chain reaction. Finally, Keith records the responses and feedback from those who had received the money and how it multiplied itself in ways far beyond what they had planned.
Though the interesting things that Keith and Emily enjoyed on the way made for a good story, the highlights to Goodwill Tour: Paying it Forward are the reactions and the feedback that they received. What they discovered and what Keith Maginn records is that people are always eager to help out their fellow man if given the opportunity. Encouraging, inspiring and at times entertaining, Goodwill Tour: Paying It Forward will not only leave you with a smile on your face, but a warm feeling in your heart and the desire to want to follow the example set by these two crazy people.
