“Vaccines are the tugboats of preventative health.”
– William Foege
Thankfully, it looks like Covid-19 is now under control in this country. I believe most of us would agree that this is because of one primary reason … vaccines. Given that vaccine hesitancy was identified by the World Health Organization as one of the top ten global health threats of 2019, I thought the article linked below by Malcolm Burrows was both timely and fascinating. Malcolm is the head of Philanthropic Advisory Services with Scotia Wealth Management and one of the most insightful minds in Canada when it comes to the topic of philanthropy.
I would agree with Malcolm that a forgotten $75,000 donation made in 1915 could have been the most impactful gift ever made in this country. For the full story on why it is often better to give with a live hand versus a dead one, please click the below link.
