Give what you can, take what you need: A social experiment in generosity

IMG_5801 (2)


Rush hour, Union Station, a busy Thursday night. In the long passageway that connects the gates, a crowd is forming; a cluster of iPhones trained on the wall not far from the gold line, where I am heading. Pretty quickly I see what’s causing the fuss: A giant blackboard-sized mural with dollar bills thumb-tacked onto it.


The headline reads: GIVE WHAT YOU CAN TAKE WHAT YOU NEED.

Quotes by Lisa Napoli  (?)

“THE BUDDHISTS WOULD SAY that everything you need is right here, within you. There’s no need to seek outside yourself for the answers. Nothing—no place, no person—can complete you or make you happy. The longer I live, the more I see and experience, the more certain I am that this is true. And yet, occasionally, a shakeup in location, or in the company you keep, can touch you in just the right way, awaken something inside you. At precisely the moment you need it. Timing”
Lisa Napoli, Radio Shangri-La: What I Learned in the Happiest Kingdom on Earth

“This is not a bedroom war, this is a political movement,” roared Betty Friedan, author of what many saw as the guiding text of the movement, The Feminine Mystique, and cofounder of the National Organization for Women, or NOW, which had organized the protests. “Man is not the enemy. Man is a fellow-victim.”
Lisa Napoli, Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR

“or the company already “had its woman.” (On occasion, the rejection was delivered by a man who put his hand on her thigh.)”
Lisa Napoli, Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR
