I believe that all we have is with us only to be shared: I aim to make a regular practice of giving throughout my adulthood, both as I do now in meaningful gifts to friends, as well as concerted monetary gifts based in an analysis of what can be impactful, transformative, and helpful. I will give a minimum of 5% of my income when I have little, and more regularly (I hope) 10-20% of my income to non-profits, charities, philanthropies, and other organizations that improve people’s condition, give relief, or empower them. Beyond that, I aim to volunteer my time and skills regularly and thoughtfully, God willing.
