    Henry Timms- #Giving Tuesday: The Giving Season on Uncommon Giving

    in Lifestyle

    It is never too early to plan your giving year.                         We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day. On Tuesday December 3, 2013 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The idea for the campaign sprung from Henry Timms, deputy executive director of the Jewish community center 92nd Street Y, and Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation. New York’s 92nd Street Y has been the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project, and providing #GivingTuesday a home. Henry Timms has also been instrumental in producing the annual Social Good Summit, in partnership with Mashable and the UN Foundation, which has opened up the UN Week conversation to over 120,000 across the world. Earlier in his career, Henry oversaw corporate strategy for Arts & Business, one of HRH The Prince of Wales’ charities, and helped to launch the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.

    The Spirit of Giving

    in Finance

    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

    Matthew Bishop-The Philanthrocapitalism Revolution on Uncommon Giving

    in Lifestyle

    From Buffett to Bono, how today’s leading philanthropists are revolutionizing the field, using new methods to have a vastly greater impact on the world. For philanthropists of the past, charity was often a matter of simply giving money away. For the philanthrocapitalists—the new generation of billionaires who are reshaping the way they give—it’s like business. Largely trained in the corporate world, these “social investors” are using big-business-style strategies and expecting results and accountability to match. Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, is leading the way: he has promised his entire fortune to finding a cure for the diseases that kill millions of children in the poorest countries in the world. In Philanthrocapitalism, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green examine this new movement and its implications. Proceeding from interviews with some of the most powerful people on the planet—including Gates, Bill Clinton, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, and Bono, among others—they show how a web of wealthy, motivated donors has set out to change the world. Matthew Bishop is the US Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief of The Economist. Before joining The Economist, Mr. Bishop was on the faculty of London Business School, where he co-authored three books for the Oxford University Press on subjects ranging from privatization and regulation to corporate mergers. Prior to that, Mr. Bishop was educated at Oxford University. Matthews websites are: http://www.economist.com/mediadirectory/matthew-bishop http://www.philanthrocapitalism.net/

    Giving and Receiving on Talk-N-Angels Radio Show

    in Spirituality

    Sometimes it feels like all you do is give, give, give.  No one seems to notice or appreciate what you are giving and it feels like you are becoming depleted of energy, vitality and joy.  When a person begins to feel like this, it is time to balance out the equation and start receiving.  You do not need to ask someone to give to you, although that is a very direct way to begin the process of receiving.  All you really need to do is give to yourself a bit.  Let yourself have a night off, a day off, a comfy chair, a good book, silence, meditation, shopping, a concert, time with a good friend, or whatever else it is that you need in your life to help you open up to receiving.


    If you haven't been giving enough and are not aware of it, notice how much you are taking into yourself and see if there is any imbalance with what you are giving out from yourself.  When there is a deficit of giving on this side of the equation, you will feel as though there is a roadblock to the good that is waiting to come into you.  Let go of something, whether it is time or money, a favorite poem, a song a prayer and give it to someone.  Spend some thought energy and attention on someone else.  See if it helps to balance the equation and bring about more joy and peace in your life.  


    On this week's show, we invite listeners to call in and ask for what it is that they would like to receive.   Tell us about what you want to give to the world, to a person, to a community and how it makes you feel.   And we will help facilitate an angelic attunement so that you can feel balanced and whole in both giving and receiving.


    The Wingman will share his practices for opening up to the power of giving and receiving and will give us a much needed boost of positive loving energy!
