Apparently, all the coins thrown to the fountain are used for good causes. Yes, that is lovely but it would be even better if people could also donate to people directly more. The good news is that it is easier than ever to really be helpful and kind. I highly recommend making donations to givewell, which assesses effectiveness of charities so we can be more effective. Also, I suggest donating to givedirectly, helping out the extreme poor immediately.  No doubt amounts matter but our love is more important as it makes things happen. Love your neighbor 😀
