The unsung philanthropists

In yesterday’s column, Washington Post personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary shared heartwarming examples of ordinary people “sharing their abundance” with friends and neighbors in need.

I’ve always felt that it was unfortunate that the measures of giving have no way to track philanthropy in its essence, the love of human kind.

Reading Michelle’s column reminded me that we need to honor these daily acts of altruism that occur all around us… from the neighbor who gladly shares a few eggs to the vacation rental landlord we met one year who volunteered by driving cancer patients four or five hours each way from rural Maine to Boston for treatment.

Thank you.
