by TechCrunch staff writer A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending a talk about charity giving in the UK.
During the course of that event, I was given the opportunity to share some of my thoughts on the value of a good christian charity, and a good charity is what makes me a good Christian.
This is a blog post about what it takes to be a good charitable person.
