Robin Hood Was Right : A Guide to Giving Your Money for Social Change
by Chuck Collins and Joan P. Garner and Pam Rogers


Overview -
Last year, Americans donated $150 billion to charity. Giving has never been more popular, possible or, for many, more confusing. There are oceans of need, mountains of requests, and often little time for the consideration needed to give thoughtfully and effectively. "Change, not charity!" is this book's enthusiastic theme. Long time activists and givers, authors Chuck Collins and Pam Rogers show that traditional charity most often reinforces the status quo and maintains the dynamics of dependency and control. The progressive ethic of giving endorsed in this book, on the other hand, offers detailed ways to address the root causes of societal problems. With numerous organizational listings and hundreds of helpful suggestions, Robin Hood Was Right is a fun, user friendly guide for the socially conscious giver, whether one is able to give annually $500 or $5,000,000.
