In one of our recent articles, ‘Enlightening Warren Buffett quotes’, we explored several famous quotes by Warren Buffett. One in particular was, “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” In many ways, this can relate to the benefits derived by others through your engagement in philanthropy.

There is a common misconception that in order to give you need to be wealthy; however, the truth is that philanthropy can come in many shapes and sizes, both financial and non-financial. For example, it can include donating money to charity or volunteering your time at a local shelter.

Although this video takes a funny look at engaging in ‘philanthropy’ via a well-known social media platform, an appropriate and planned approach to philanthropy can be a truly rewarding experience and make a real difference to others. Take for example the e-NABLE community.
