"Your priorities are family THEN job. Your job will provide you with he means to support your community financially, but your family is what connects you to that community.
You don't have to be wealthy to be philanthropic. (Mr. Hotchkiss's first philanthropic activity was flooding the community hockey rink and coaching the kids)
When you are ready to give, it should "hurt" a little. If your donation doesn't make you consider giving something up (even if it is a latte a week) then you are not giving enough.
Philanthropy should be about building community, not just giving money."
These days, that is revolutionary.
