In today’s society, there are colossal disparities between the rich and the poor. The less privileged in society are many. Such people live in a world of suffering, in degrading conditions. There is nothing as great a gift than devoting a bit of your time or giving food, clothes or money to a needy person. Such works of charity are an illustration of one’s love for all humankind and the desire to change the world. This is the desire of philanthropic people such as Alex von Furstenberg– to make a difference and bring change to society.
