For the love of philanthropy

I tweeted from the EPIP pre-conference that Robby Rodriguez mentioned love in his remarks and I was pretty sure that that was the last time that I would hear that word at this conference. The universe has a wonderful way of proving me wrong.

Speakers on the racial justice panel taking about putting love into your work to achieve real results, Crystal Hayling at the ABFE lecture said "you only have one choice, love or fear", and the dessert and the lunch plenary had a heart design on the plate.

I get it universe, you can't have philanthropy without love. This is the last time I make broad generalizations about philanthropy (for today).
