Visionary Videos: Samantha Nutt at TED

In some parts of the world, it's easier to get an automatic rifle than a glass of clean drinking water. Is this just the way it is?

With close to 1 million views, this insightful TED talk is a must-see.

Visionary Videos: Dan Pallotta at TED

As a champion for charity fundraising like Movember's annual campaign in the month of November, activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta helped pave the way for the multi-day charitable event industry. He created the Breast Cancer 3-Day walks and the multi-day AIDS Rides, which raised in excess of half a billion dollars in nine years.

Dan calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend — not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold TED talk with over 4 million views to date, he says: Let's change the way we think about changing the world.
