Marie Lam

We Chinese give, but it's only from the heart. We need to use a little more mind behind our giving. Of course, coming from the heart is important. This is where it starts, a sense of gratitude, or a feeling of obligation to those we care about or who gave to us. But then we really need to find ways to extend our financial gifts and make them work for us with more impact.

I believe there are so many of us whom we have not yet tapped. I am not just referring to the very wealthy among us, but the middle class. We now have assets which we must mobilize on behalf of the issues we care about. To accomplish this, leadership and trust are essential to ensure that our money and time are used effectively and strategically.
