1-Minute Generosity: Helping Thousands in Need

Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. Updated: Jul 6th 2010

hand heartIn January of 2010 a 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti, affecting an estimated 3 million people. During that time, I created A Mindful Dialogue: A Path Toward Working with Stress, Pain and Difficult Emotions where 100% of the profits went to Hope for Haiti Now. The book raised a few thousand dollars that I'm hoping benefited many Haitians. As time is passing, I'm realizing there are likely other organizations that could also use any financial assistance that is possible.

In this post, I'm reaching out to you to find out what organizations you feel would be best in receiving the proceeds from this book?

I've spoken in the past about the benefits of altruism and even writing some names below is an act toward these organizations possibly receiving much needed monies that can benefit their cause.

The book itself is a collection of writings and interviews that speak to the work of mindfulness as an approach to working with life's challenges.

I welcome your suggestions for charitable centers as an intangible experience of giving in this moment.

Take 1 minute right now to be intentional about who in the world right now needs service is an act in generosity. This could help thousands of people.  

Taking this action in itself is healing.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions below. Your interaction provides a living wisdom for us all to benefit from and who knows, maybe others will get inspired.

Thank you - Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. - Jul 8th 2010

Thank you Jen. Just to clarify, I am also looking for organizations that benefit others aside from Haiti. 

An organization helping Haitians - Jen - Jul 7th 2010

You might consider supporting organizations that were well-established in assisting Haitians before the earthquake. Episcopal Relief and Development is an organization that has a history of working to help Haitians before, during, and after the earthquake. It has 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. See for more information.
