Barehanded Philanthropy

More from Rachel Remen on befriending life:

“You do not need money to be a philanthropist.  We all have assets.  You can befriend life with your bare hands.”

I like that thought – “befriend life with your bare hands.”  Yes, I can give money or time to someone, some cause, to some end, but much more often I am presented the opportunity to “be a philanthropist with my bare hands,” to provide an encouraging word or a smile that need not wind its way through some bureaucracy or to some far-away place to impact a life.  Bare-handed, empty wallet, no credit card philanthropy.
