TedTalk – Nat Ware: Free Charities from the Idea of Charity

People have certain ideas about charity… that overhead costs are bad, that making profit is inappropriate, etc. The presenter turns these ideas on their heads and makes us question the idea that “Doing good isn’t good enough.” Maybe charities don’t need to always play it safe, and some risks should be made, instead of always playing it safe.

About Amanda

Hi, I’m Amanda! Originally from Ottawa, Canada, I am currently living with my partner (Steve) in Sucre, Bolivia for the next year. I work in the unique space between industrial design and international development – but what does that even mean? I’m passionate about working WITH marginalized communities in a way that utilizes design to improve the lives of different types of people around the world. I have worked, studied, traveled, and researched on every continent (except Antarctica), and most recently I lived in Ghana, Bangladesh and Nepal. I love exploring new cultures and learning more about myself along the way.
