A Better Way to Give: Compassion with Calculation

Oftentimes, good intention is not enough. Wisdom is needed to make sure that the act of love will become a blessing, not a curse.
The “how” is as important as the “why.”

“No one is so poor that they have nothing to contribute, nothing to bring to the table in the community. And so the change from toxic to transformative comes about in finding those talents, abilities, and resources that the poor have, and then setting up systems of exchange, of reciprocity, where everyone has something of value to contribute.”
