The Next Great Philanthropist: Stephen Paleta at TEDxNashville

Even before being chosen as "the biggest giver" and resounding winner of Oprah's Big Give, ABC network's competition reality series that focused on the philanthropic efforts of its contestants, Stephen Paletta had long decided to dedicate his life to helping others. "A few years ago," he says, "Bob Buford challenged me to decide if my life was to be about significance or success." In 2004, he found his answer when he traveled to Rwanda—a trip that changed his life.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
