You Are A Philanthropist

You Are A Philanthropist

Philanthropist. If we do hear this word, it is usually associated with Bill and Melinda Gates or Warren Buffet. The description in the dictionary says nothing about millions of dollars. It begs the question: shouldn’t anyone who gives to charity in some way be described as a philanthropist? It’s a commitment to humanity. It’s altruistic—going above and beyond ourselves. THIS is what the world needs. Jenn Klein is starting a global conversation about how every-day pleasantries, eco-friendly decisions, and any type of giving to others is not only what's best for the recipient, but also for you!
