Philanthropy is for All of Us: Lovers of Humanity: Eugene Cho at TEDxHanRiver 2011

Eugene Cho delivers a compelling talk at TEDxHanRiver about the essence and beauty of philanthropy. The root meaning of philanthropy, contends Cho, is to become lovers of humanity. "We don't have to be rock stars, millionaires, or famous to become philanthropists." With this in mind, he shares his family's personal story of starting a grassroots movement called One Day's Wages and about inspiring every day people to join the fight against global poverty. One Day's Wages (ODW) is a new grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving, and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions.For more information visit http://onedayswages.org/=======================================================What is TEDxHanRiver?The Han River is one of the greatest historical significances of Korea.
