Gitelson gives examples of the wealthiest

for everyone to give time, ideas and assets to help others. She offers
examples of innovative givers, social entrepreneurs, celebrities,
government officials, nonprofit professionals, volunteers and social

arts, culture and humanities, sports, multipurpose umbrella
organizations, awards and international aid.
