Why Retire?

Edward Mazria is one of five people who received the $100,000 Purpose Prize from Civic Ventures. The idea behind the award: Society has a lot of problems, and people over age 60 have the expertise to solve them. The goal is to change the narrative of retirement from one of kicking back to one of giving back, sometimes through volunteer work and sometimes through regular income-producing jobs.
