Robb Lucy of Delta co-founded the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Canada and has helped generate non-profit organizations for literacy, visit web sports and cancer awareness, there receiving a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his efforts. Now the former CBC journalist wants to encourage and inspire his Boomer generation to consider the importance of generating “legacies” in a non-monetary sense. Often humorous, Lucy’s self-published Legacies are not Just for Dead People (Legacy Communications $21.95) offers guidance for identifying personal strengths as the mainspring for projects that will benefit others—everything from garage bands to international charities. In a nutshell, “You don’t have to be rich, famous or dead to leave a legacy.” In B.C., his book is available from Black Bond Books and Book Warehouse 978-0-9940317-0-9 – US $19.88
