“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Philanthropy is all about improving the quality of life of the needy and downtrodden in whatever way we can. As a modern philanthropist, one should be pro-active in identifying and supporting charities and initiatives that are doing seriously good work in uplifting the poor and the disadvantaged. Having said this, it is also important that we, as people with regular jobs and responsibilities, realize that spending too much time on identifying and determining on good charities can be quite challenging. But if you have the passion and the commitment, you can still do a lot as a modern philanthropist. You just need to be dedicated in your endeavors in making this world a better place. You do not have to only contribute through donations or charity; you can make a difference by simply creating awareness in the society on the chosen cause, be it by participating in road shows and rallies or by simply leveraging social media and digital technology to connect more like-minded philanthropists to community needs.
