Thought for the Day: From Outrage to Transformation!
“The supreme task is to organize and unite people so that their anger becomes a transforming force.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. supported his philosophy of nonviolence with six
fundamental principles in his book Stride for Freedom, but even he had this to say about the important influence of outrage:
You can use Charity Navigator to help focus your fury. As the nation’s largest independent charity evaluator, CN provides free charity ratings and other resources to help you find a trustworthy charity that is fighting for the cause you believe in.” – Danielle Cheeseman
Doing the Most Good®
A less well-known charity evaluator is Give Well – <https://www.givewell.org/>
Give Well rates organizations mainly on how effective their projects actually are. The organizations that Give Well recommends are evidence-backed, thoroughly vetted, and underfunded. Often the focus is on how many lives a project saves.
Instead of giving another dust collector to each of your relatives this holiday, give a gift to a charity to help others &/or to promote positive changes in the world.
Happy Holidays. Aloha, Renee
