The vision of humanitarian sector with Dan Pallotta

The vision of humanitarian sector with Dan Pallotta

Last week, we published on our Facebook a video from the TED conference about The way we think about charity is dead wrong! Whether or not you’ve seen the video, here is a little summarize to tell you what’s the message:

Activist and fundraiser, Dan Pallotta denounced the double standard that drives our broken relationship with charity organizations. According to him, too many nonprofit organizations are valued when they spend a little, and not for what they achieve. That’s a pity, a charity group shouldn’t be watched like an embezzlement each time they spend money indirectly for charity causes (mainly the advertisment). The reason is that there is a double standard between nonprofit and for-profit sector.

Instead of assimilating the frugality of morality, he asks us to begin to develop the charities for their great goals and great achievement, even if it comes with great expenses. As exemple, 350,000$ has been invested for the campain of Breast cancer, and they multiplied this investment by more than 551 times to reach the incredible amount of 194,000,000$ raised!

To summarize the main message of Dan Pallotta, nothing better that the sentence he said: “Changing the way we think to change the world.”

What do you think about that? Let us your opinion by leaving a comment!
