I’ve got big news today — and I’d love your help shouting it from the rooftops!

Today’s New York Times includes a major article — Want to Leave a Legacy? Be a Mentor — featuring Encore.org CEO Marc Freedman’s new book, How to Live Forever.

Renowned health columnist Jane Brody says the book “spoke volumes” about legacy, the power of mentoring across generations, and the “incomparable value” of showing up for younger people on the health of older ones.

In this crazy news cycle with so many fighting for air time, we have few chances to rise above the din with an optimistic message about the power of longer lives and intergenerational connection. Let’s seize this one!
