Not sure if this is the best place to post this kind of stuff, but I figured I might start a series of threads if I don't get lazy to show people new perspectives that they probably haven't through of, or ways to reinforce things that some may have already thought of in an effective way. :)

I'll start off with this presentation about how we think about giving money to charity and how charity uses said money.

We all want our donations to go directly to helping victims, with as little administrative waste as possible. This makes perfect logical and moral sense, until you expand your horizons a bit and think further. Dan Pallotta explains (yes, it's a fairly long video, but do watch it--it's worth it):

This was an eye opener for me. What about you? Did this video give you a fresh way to look at the issue at hand, perhaps changing your mind about it?
