The FP Top 100 Global Thinkers: Mari Kuraishi has proved that, thanks to the Internet, everyone can be a philanthropist

 http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2011/11/28/the_fp_top_100_global_thinkers?page=0,50#thinker96

Mari Kuraishi has proved that, thanks to the Internet, everyone can be a philanthropist -- and the giant development institutions no longer have a monopoly on efforts to improve the lot of the world's poorest. In 2000, the Japanese native left a successful career at the World Bank to found GlobalGiving -- a website she describes as an "eBay for philanthropy" that revolutionized the field by connecting a worldwide community of donors with ventures in need of funding. A decade later, hundreds of thousands of donors have pooled their funds -- the average donation is around $25 -- to give more than $50 million to more than 4,500 projects.
