Who Gives?

The Economist’s Matthew Bishop says we should make this year’s “giving tuesday” (the opening day of the giving season) the day of the Unselfie.

+ This year, I joined the board of a great Bay Area organization called 826 Valencia (founded by Dave Eggers). Through after-school tutoring, school workshops, and college-readiness programs, the group does great work inspiring kids to become more confident writers and learners. It’s inspiring stuff. If you feel like supporting a NextDraft cause this holiday season, please consider making a donation to 826 Valencia (and be sure to answer the question about what made you decide to give so we can track the power of the NextDraft community).

+ Aeon: The selfish gene is one of the most successful science metaphors ever invented. Unfortunately, it’s wrong. (I’ll chime in on this once I see our 826 Valencia fundraising numbers!)
