PhilanthroPals ... generous synergies!
A poem first.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
And now the essence of being a philanthropal
Global Natives' Philanthropy is not primarily a financial thing.
Time and talent shared can account for many a problem solved.
And whenever give-and-take is hard to do because many kids need
to take now and can only give back to others some time in the future,
a philanthropal can jump in and give a hand and a chance.

Please do take the time - twelve minutes -
to watch until Katherine Fulton makes
her final point.
And this is our point:
"There is plenty of convincing evidence that the majority of people are quite prepared to give others a helping hand – provided they can be sure that they are not being taken advantage of."
