“Don’t Change the Channel” is the inspiring story of how one woman didn’t look away from a news conference on TV, and chose to help a family whose lives had been devastated by a mother’s murder. Jenn’s outpouring of energy and care led to others being inspired and giving their all to help. Within three weeks of that news conference, a community- wide festival was held, a college trust was established, and the family had a new house and renovations donated to them.

This book motivates people to seize the moments in their lives to help others. No matter where you are in your life and how busy you are, you can make a difference. Step-by-step instructions are given on how to get involved, find a cause that you are passionate about, and make your time and efforts effective and productive.
