Travel blogger Kim Dinan quit her job, sold her home in Portland and convinced her husband to embark on a round-the-world travel adventure with no timeline or particular destination in mind. On the eve of their departure, they received an unusual going away gift from friends…a yellow envelope with $1,000 and three simple instructions for giving it away during their travels.

Kim chats with Big Blend Radio about her new memoir, "The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and A Life-Changing Journey Around the World", that shares how the gift traveled with her through a rickshaw race in India, volunteering at a children’s literacy and arts center in Ecuador, visiting a tiny island in Peru, trekking across Nepal, and beyond. As Kim distributes the gift to people she encounters along the way, she learns that money does not have a thing to do with the capacity to give, but that giving—of ourselves—is transformational.
