– "The heart of philanthropy is spiritual." Left brain, right heart is a great concept, used here on the subject of philanthropy by Randall Ottinger. I might add that the "right" also could refer to being ‘upright’ or even ‘righteous’ in our generosity.
– NYTimes has an article on philanthropy and blogs. Quote:
"Philanthropy has been late to the game of blogging, hardly a surprise in a field that has operated on personal relationships and reputations earned over decades. But just as charities have learned in recent years to use e-mail blasts to solicit support, their executives are getting used to a digital world in which there are fewer secrets than in the past."
