When a California realtor read "The Peace Pilgrim," he was so inspired that he decided that it was time to make his life more meaningful, he told a reporter for a local magazine.  With his partner, they formed a real estate company that donates one-half of their sales commission to the charity or nonprofit of their client's choice.
