Interesting Presentation

A short but useful presentation on how the notion of philanthropy has evolved, and that the increased involvment of the public is democratizing charitable causes.

Sean Stannard-Stockton, calls the time we're in the "Second Great Wave of Philanthropy", that since the advent of social media, the next surge of generosity is coming from the general populace, not just the rich. There really is no reason why the practice of microphilanthropy can't become mainstream.
