Philanthropy means "love of humanity" in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, and enhancing "what it is to be human".  Therefore a philanthropist is defined as a person who loves humanity.  A philanthropist is not determined by the size of the charitable gift but rather by the size of the love that is given with the gift.  Every person who gives their time and money to support a charitable cause is a philanthropist.  A person who through generosity big or small creates moments of joy for people in need.

Every person who has ever been loved by someone leaves a legacy of some kind but most don't know where to start or what to do.  Most of us take many basic things for granted; warm clothing, food on the table, a roof over our heads.  However, as you know, these basic necessities are not available to everyone. One of the greatest needs in the lives of our children is the need to be allowed to just be children. All too often, especially in our world’s poorest towns and villages, children are forced to grow up too fast. They are so focused on learning the basics of survival, that they seldom take time to smile, laugh and play. How would you like to be the person responsible for creating moments of joy and love experienced by seeing children play, laugh or smile, or the families in need experiencing happiness and hope where previously it did not exist.

We all have causes we are passionate about.  This presentation will outline a simple and easy to understand process for building a lasting legacy so that you can live a life of philanthropy as well even though you may never thought you could.
