Big Heart Bragging

2 min clip:

FULL Broadcast:

Traditionally, charity is something that should be done quietly and anonymously. But I think that should change.

Public acts of good in the social media era is a beautiful thing. Instead of corporate charities filling our mailboxes with expensive marketing materials, we now get bombarded by friends and family sharing their personal fund-raising efforts. This is WAY better.

I don’t want to be told what to do. I don’t want to be made to feel bad. I don’t want to be motivated to act as a way to ease my guilt.
I want to be inspired.

That is why there is real value to sharing good deeds publicly.
