love thursday 02.04.10 ~ philanthropy

Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.

~ Martin Luther King Jr. ~

Philanthropy. The love of mankind...humankind. If we truly loved humankind, wouldn't we try to make sure that everyone had what they need?

Happy Love Thursday, everyone. I hope you all have what you need.

Here is a link to a piece I wrote on a novel Australian approach to philanthropy - "commercial in confidence?"

I agree with your sentiments so much, Wanda... I feel blessed to have more and then some of what I truly need. I can only pray and help to do so that others may experience such too. :o)

Thought provoking quote!

Yes, yes indeed. Economist Lester Brown, who wrote the Plan B books (since Plan A isn't working) has developed a budget that can save the climate AND raise every human being on the planet out of poverty--if we act now, fast and hard. I like that kind of thinking. The reason his budget includes eliminating poverty: It seems we cannot save the planet without saving the poorest of us.

Don't you love it?

Thanks for the love, Wanda.
