Quotes

- Nelson Mandela

There's no better way to show donors what you're doing than by documenting what you're doing via the social web. You simply cannot buy this kind of advertising.
- Conversation

A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.
- Jack London

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
- First Letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 13
