60:60 Celebrating Sixty Years With Sixty Acts Of Kindness


Mahvash Yazdi, seasoned corporate leader and current industry consultant, has had a long and prosperous career in the Information Technology sector. After 30 years in the corporate world, Yazdi left to pursue her own goals – both career and charitable. 60:60 Celebrating Sixty Years with Sixty Acts of Kindness is a memoir of the year this nationally recognized business and community leader devoted to the pursuit of compassion and charity, and the lessons she learned along the way.

60:60 Celebrating Sixty Years with Sixty Acts of Kindness is not only an account of Yazdi’s pursuit of a 60th birthday goal to accomplish 60 acts of kindness in one year; it is also the account of the journey of an Iranian woman who escaped the Revolution and, through both hard work and determination as well as the acts of kindness bestowed upon her by others, was able to carve out a rich, successful, and ultimately meaningful life for herself.

In 60:60 Celebrating Sixty Years with Sixty Acts of Kindness, Yazdi documents each charitable act as well as the insights each pursuit left with her with, all framed within her own larger story, one which documents experiences of fleeing a homeland, facing homelessness, and rising up against crime and circumstance. Her story is personal yet universal; it is a story that will resonate with anyone who has grown up, left home, and fallen on hard times. Above all, it will speak to the importance of giving back to the greater community to one’s own growth, success, and wellbeing, told through an engaging and fascinating personal history. It is not just a memoir but a celebration of one of humanity’s most tremendous assets: kindness, and a testament to the fact that giving to others can be the greatest gift one can ever give oneself.
