Walt Whitman said, "Charity and personal force are the only investments worth anything," and at this time of the year, many in our community look to others for help and charity. But philanthropic works are needed year round, and Houston has one of the strongest “giving” communities in the country. But how does philanthropy work? What impact does it truly have in our area? What inspires individuals to dedicate their time and give of themselves and their money? And what should be government’s role in helping those who are in need? This week on Houston 8, we explore the art of giving.
