Todays post comes to us courtesy of the Ted Talks. It is about how we think about charity and "The O Word". The talk is done by activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta who calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done.

In this bold talk, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world.You can find it on the Ted site here and watch the Ted Talk video below..
