What's it about?

Giving back to our own community, or those less fortunate than us is something many among us strive to do. In addition to helping others, knowing that we could help improve someone's life can help us build a sense of belonging and purpose in our lives, too. But, are all the efforts society makes around charity really making that big of a difference? And what are the motives of the global elites' investment in philanthropy? Whether it's a PR tactic or a genuine interest in helping to boost others up, this collection investigates how much good one person can actually do through charitable giving, how we might make more effective donations, and spotlights charitable personal and entrepreneurial ventures to inspire you and get you thinking.
