Giving (whether cash or physical help) to individuals—human and animal—is the most satisfying and heartwarming experience, because afterward I see a life made a tiny bit happier. I think Bill Gates understands this secret. His money goes to improving individual lives, not to building monuments. Just to remind myself again of the secret: Bricks and mortar crumble; give support to the people, and they will build the supports they need. Caregivers can create a hospital in a tent. It’s not zoos that are needed to protect animals who are suffering from poachers and overcrowding, but guards who will protect their habitats so the animals can stay at home and be wild. - Bokara Legendre, Buddhist philanthropist
