Kim will also speak on May 12 at the Dubuque Conven- tion and Visitor’s Bureau Tourism Break- fast, at Diamond Jo Casino Ballroom. Earlier this month, Kim released her book, The Yellow Envelope, about her experiences of traveling the world and giving back along the way. After Kim and her husband decide to quit their jobs to travel the world, they’re given a yellow envelope containing a check and instructions to give the money away. There are only three rules for the envelope: 1. Don’t overthink it, 2. Share your experiences, and 3. don’t feel pressured to give it all away. Through Ecuador, Peru, Nepal, and beyond, Kim and Brian face obstacles, including major challenges to their relationship. As she distributes the gift to people she encounters along the way, Roll & sole-A-thon she learns that money does not have a thing to do with the capac- ity to give, but that giving—of ourselves—is transformational. Book proceeds go to the Dubuque Rescue Mission, as part of the ongo- ing You Inspire Me series organized by Jeff Lenhart. Admission for the presentation and book signing at Hotel Julien Dubuque is free, and the Tourism Breakfast is $10. Sponsoring Kim’s trip to Dubuque is the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, Hotel Julien Dubuque, 365ink Magazine, and the Dubuque Convention & Visitor’s Bureau.
