↑↓GivingTide is an all-inclusive family-enriching social movement. Whilst adults may become Philanthropes by signing the Giving Pledge, youths could play the role of on-line and offline canvassers (‘Philanthroteens’) while children (‘Philanthrokids’) would provide feedback, by thanking those who sign the Giving Pledge. In summary, adults GIVE THE MONEY, youth GIVE THE WORD and children GIVE THE THANKS.
You do not need to be the chair of a large foundation to make an impact. Risk takers need backers. Good ideas need evangelists. Forgotten communities need advocates. And whether your chief resource is volunteer time or hard-earned dollars, for a relatively small investment catalytic philanthropy can make a big impact. –Bill Gates
