Wise words from Doris Buffett, sister of Warren Buffett and founder of her own self-funded charitable organization, Sunshine Lady Foundation.
"If you actually made a difference, I think that's the greatest reward and the best testimony to your life."
Doris Buffett was at Cornell University recently and eClips was fortunate enough to catch up with her and capture some of her wonderful words for our collection. To hear the full context from Buffett's quote, listen to the eClip.
Another recent addition to eClips is a lecture from Joanne Florino, Executive Director of the Triad Foundation. She recently spoke on both the background and current challenges facing charitable organizations. To hear more about what Florino had to say, check out her comments in eClips.
Apparently, eClips is not alone in our interest in charitable organizations. In the May 7, 2007 edition of Forbes, Vartan Gregorian, president of the Carnegie Corporation, wrote an article entitled The Charity Chain. In the article, Gregorian states the need for big foundations to band together to address global needs. He ends the article with a comment which is very similar to the one from Buffett - "What is done to improve the lives of human beings is much more important than who is responsible."
