The Drowning Child and the Expanding Circle

One morning, I say to them, you notice a child has fallen in and appears to be drowning.

Why and how to earn to give

Some people have skills that are better suited to earning money than doing good directly. By ‘earning to give’ we mean that: (i) You deliberately pursue a career that is high-earning (given your options) in order to do good through your donations.

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. Life in the Paris Banlieues. Fouad Ben Ahmed never paid much attention to Charlie Hebdo. He found the satirical magazine to be vulgar and not funny, and to him it seemed fixated on Islam, but he didn’t think that its contributors did real harm.

One of its cartoonists, Stéphane Charbonnier, also drew for Le Petit Quotidien, a children’s paper to which Ben Ahmed subscribed for his two kids. On January 7th, upon hearing that two French brothers with Algerian names, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi, had executed twelve people at the Charlie Hebdo offices—including Charbonnier—in revenge for covers caricaturing Muhammad, Ben Ahmed wrote on Facebook, “My French heart bleeds, my Muslim soul weeps.
