“The way we think about charity is dead wrong”- Dan Pallotta

In this special Thursday edition to the blog, I am simply suggesting that you watch the following TED talk. It presents a new way to judge the effectiveness of a nonprofit. I agree with some parts of it, and disagree with others. However, it presents ideas that I think every person interested in nonprofits or philanthropy needs to think about. Actually, it presents ideas that anyone that donates money at all needs to think about. After you watch it, please leave comments with your thoughts! I want to hear what others think because I am conflicted about some assertions made here. Charity Navigator might want to consider these as well.
