give it away... creatively

An inspirational article in the New York Times (thank you, Kitty) reminds me to commit to creative acts of kindness and philanthropy.

"It’s a great technological trick that it now takes no more than a text message to send $10 to Haiti. But with that simplicity comes a certain passivity. There is a benefit, too, to having a creative challenge built into some personal charitable giving — innovation of all kinds requires ownership, reinvention, elaborate consideration."

Let's get our hands "dirty". What creative acts of philanthropy can you share?


  1. that is crazy! i think his problem was just giving one dollar away... better to give 5 maybe....

  2. Very interesting,we're thought you don't get something for nothing, so we're afraid!---m
