Philanthropy on TV

I was part of a story on TV1’s Seven Sharp programme today asking “are kiwis givers?”  See the clip here.

Journalist Emma Keeling did a very nice job of talking about philanthropy and the Todd Foundation funded Y-men project, (which gets unemployed young men into work and training as ECE teachers in kindergartens), was inspiring.  Great to see Pat Shepherd’s innovative One Percent Collective featured too.

The last line sums it up I think – “when we are all giving and receiving then we have communities that are really thriving.”
