It is a straight yes and no answer. Donations don't count. This is a point blank statement. Either you will quit and go feed, or you stay at your job and let others do it for you.
The fact is I guarantee everyone here will say NO because of multiple reasons:
- we want to live the good life
- we have a sense of greed
- we don't want to give up our security for our own uncertain future
- we have our own goals, dreams and aspirations that we want to achieve for ourselves and family
- we can't afford to do this
I can honestly say I cannot do this. But what I will say is more power to those who can do it.
Nice video, but at the end of the day, our own reality comes into play and we make decisions out of own self interests and not the interests of others. That is human nature at its raw.
Peace & Love.
Also, if you want someone just as, if not more, philanthropic, see ex Fox Film head, Scott Neeson

Once in a while, I tell someone about this man and his wife and how I enjoy visiting them and helping out. The sad thing is that more often than not, I will see a puzzled look on their face, like they don't understand or they think maybe I have nothing better to do. They don't have a clue about what they are missing out on.
Even if you only spare 15 minutes in a week, you can be making a huge difference in someone's life. A measly 15 minutes. And soon you will realize that they are giving more to you, than you to them.
Give it a try if you haven't already.
