The Classic Pamela Positive: Philanthropy – Start Loving Others Now

Share This Post

While it is commonly accepted, I\’m not sure I agree that philanthropy means giving away \”money.\”


Instead, philanthropy is the love of humanity, of people. And what I cherish about this definition is that it is accessible to anyone, at any time.

We can all be philanthropists. Whether you are getting the dry cleaning, having a conversation with your boss or coworker, or saying a kind hello to a homeless person, you are a philanthropist.


Philanthropy should be, and is, accessible to all. I love that we can start loving others now!

The Definition of Philanthropy: 1: goodwill to fellow members of the human race; especially: active effort to promote human welfare 2: an act or gift done or made for humanitarian purposes.
