I remember the day I changed how I think about philanthropy. I was about to give away a bunch of shoes. Some of them were brand new, others barely worn. Hundreds of dollars of shoes. As I was packing them up, I started to think about how easy this was for me - to spend on shoes I never wear - and yet, how I anguish over whether to give a $36 gift to a meaningful charity. It made me re-think my priorities. And how I can make them better align with my values. I still give away too many pairs of shoes, but now I also support the things I care about in a more substantial way.
