How many times have we heard ourselves, our friends, or our kids' grandparents complain that children have too many things and don't appreciate any of it? We all enjoy doing things for children - buying them something special, taking them on a fun outing, throwing a great birthday party. But at the same time, many of us fear that without some balance, most children will grow up thinking only of themselves. This observation is what led Carol Weisman, MSW, CSP, MOM, to write "Raising Charitable Children." In this book, Weisman shares real-life stories collected from allover the world of how parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, scout leaders, friends, next door neighbors, and her own family have either initiated or supported ways to teach children how to give back to those in need. But she doesn't stop there. After each of the stories, Weisman offers specific steps to help anyone translate these ideas into action. In this way, she turns what might have been just a lot of wonderful stories into a set of practical maps or models anyone can use to start making a difference now.
Carol is president of Board Builders, is an internationally known speaker, author, trainer and consultant. Carol won a Telly Award for her PBS special "Building a Board with a Passion for Mission." She is still trying to figure out how to mount her award on her car. Carol works closely with The Chronicle of Philanthropy doing a blog on fundraising, webinars and an advice column. When not speaking, writing and traveling, she works out with a group of plus-sized runners called "The Chaffing Dishes."

#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT).
In the U.S. there are over 1.5 million nonprofit organizations that compete for charitable dollars. The fact is it's become more difficult today to attract donations in our social media-savvy society, despite spending over $7.6 billion annually on marketing.
What to do? Well, according to the 2012 Nonprofit Social Networking Report, nonprofits find great value in their fast-growing social networks. This makes sense since many of us utilize social networks to communicate and collaborate in a variety of personal and professional ways, including aligning with companies' corporate social responsibility initiatives. We live in a society today where social giving, impact investing and paying it forward are indicative of a different way of thinking about philanthropy, and there are new services and platforms that allow nonprofits, consumers and small businesses to benefit greatly in their giving. This week’s #TChat Radio and Twitter #TChat will discuss what it means to put social giving in this new nonprofit world of work. #TChat co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guests Marion Mariathasan, CEO of SoRewarding.com, a cause-focused social network that integrates giving into your daily activities, and Jure Klepic, a prolific speaker, writer, marketing and social media innovator who specializes in marketing strategy and social media innovation for consumer business.
This will be a great "world of work" show, so we hope to see you here!
In this episode I'll discuss how giving money to charitable causes helps us stay financially healthy. It's a great paradox that the more generous we are, the richer we become both in spirit AND in our bank accounts. I'll talk about the benefits of giving, the barriers to giving, how to get started on your journey to becoming a generous giver. Email me questions you have on tithing, giving, and charities before or during the show! Christine@ChristineLuken.com
When we think about generous giving we automatically think of money. However there are other gifts that have no monetary value and whose value is beyond price. Mary Kaleli and Wangari Siocha will give us tips on generous giving. Listen live at 619-393-2852 or listen live/archived at: http://pinnacleofpraiseshow.com/new/

Corporations and those who lead them have become the strong and vital patrons of our culture. They sponsor and advocate for our arts, education, hospitals, and our environment. Our community charities depend on our businesses, and our businesses depend on a good relationship with their community. This week host Bart Jackson invites Thomas Bakewell, author of Claiming Your Place at the Boardroom Table, to discuss how business people may plan charitable strategies that create a win-win for both givers and recipients. It's all part of being a good corporate neighbor, and now, in this season of generosity, 'tis time to take pause and consider the best ways to use our resources for the benefit of all. As always, those who give and those given unto are each bless the other.
Join co-hosts Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) as they discuss teaching our youth about gift-giving. What does gift-giving mean, how to best give and receive graciously, and how these discussions can be part of learning a bigger lesson will be part of the very on-topic seasonal conversation.
Join us as we talk with Andrew Watt, FInstF, President and CEO, Association of Fundraising Professionals about the role that the Association of Fundraising Professionals plays in philanthropy in the US as well as key insights from the 2014 Global Infrastructure for Giving report.

This week we'll explore the most precious gifts giving to humanity by Jesus with a reading of two amazing sections from the Urantia Book, Paper 100: Section 7 - The Acme of Religious Living and Paper 171: Section 7 - As Jesus Passed By.
Here is a preview:
Jesus spread good cheer everywhere he went. He was full of grace and truth.
Jesus really understood men; therefore could he manifest genuine sympathy and show sincere compassion.
Jesus could help men so much because he loved them so sincerely. He truly loved each man, each woman, and each child.
Jesus was never in a hurry. He had time to comfort his fellow men "as he passed by."
When he smiled on a man, that mortal experienced increased capacity for solving his manifold problems.
He frequently set out to help a person by asking for help.
Great things happened not only because people had faith in Jesus, but also because Jesus had so much faith in them.
It was literally true, "He went about doing good."
He lived the truth, even as he taught it. He was the truth
Jesus was an unusually cheerful person... His constant word of exhortation was, "Be of good cheer."
The Master was always generous. He never grew weary of saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Said he, "Freely you have received, freely give."
Jesus was great because he was good, and yet he fraternized with the little children.
Jesus was the perfectly unified human personality. And today, as in Galilee, he continues to unify mortal experience and to co-ordinate human endeavors
Join us as we explore Jesus' splendid gifts to us, the greatest of which is the gift of love. We also hope to share our favorite ways of giving and some of our favorite charities. Please call and share your gifts!
