Time magazine shared some statistics from DARA on the successful dispersal humanitarian aid. The U.S. ranked 16th of the 23 countries listed. This list measured amounts sent and also the efficient use of funds. What this says is that it’s time for new philanthropy.
In this age of blogs, e-newsletters, and “donate now” buttons, anyone can become an advocate for their favorite causes and help raise funds and awareness to improve the worlds biggest problems. Everyman philanthropy is faster, more efficient and much more socially plugged-in than the efforts of large organizations. It’s time for us to step up and change things. There’s never been a better environment for it.
