Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong | Video on TED.com

Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done.
Paul Signorelli's insight:

Activist/fundraiser Dan Pallotta, in this wonderfully inspiration TED talk, provides a primer in how to rethink our attitudes toward charity and fundraising in ways that can produce magnificent results in collaboration and the development of community.

Park Information | Friends of the High Line | Community, Collaboration, and Volunteerism | Scoop.it
Paul Signorelli's insight:

Magnificent community project in New York; from the project website: "The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition. It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy."
