While I care about the rights and lives of all humans, my particular areas of interest are the welfare of children and women. These seem to be two groups who suffer oppression globally. I also have a personal interest in congenital heart defects.
About My Inner Philanthropist (why I give):
"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. " - John Donne
This is how I think of life, so giving is natural. One day I would like to be in the field helping, in addition to giving.
