Philanthropy Abstract
Indeed, Singer, of the book "The Most Good You Can Do", is an unwitting other. From his
book, it is evident that Singer alienates or instead tends to treat the wealthy that provide donations
as individuals that have a different diversion from the acceptable norms in the poor society.
However, such action or rather mentality is unintentional as he tries to provide evidence of
loopholes within the same issue, Singer (2015). Again, he also offers solutions to the same
problems by offering or instead suggesting new ideas. In the book, Singer discusses that emotions
should not be the driving factor towards giving. However, individuals should try and reason out to
develop a better way of giving that is more sensible and not clouded by emotions. Callahan, the
author of the book "The Givers", does tend to suggest that all givers act from the drive of satisfying
their ego. Callahan believes that the givers do give for their interest, such as gaining benefits or
more power. Callahan claims that giving does not have any other way of presenting itself apart
from the driven force of emotions Callahan (, 2017). He discusses that individuals will be
emotionally driven for them to decide to give. The authors Callahan and Singer suggest that the
"Make a Wish" foundation is indeed empathy motivated. The emotional feeling that develops
towards someone is what gives rise to having empathy towards the subject, Singer (2015). Hence,
the giver comes up with the offer "Make a Wish" to try and calm or instead satisfy the empathy
they may have. Callahan provides the role of legality as an alternative to philanthropy.
Philanthropy tends to encourage the functions brought about by legitimacy towards such ethical
dilemmas as giving. Legality ensures that there is leverage in resources and assists in enforcing
changes that may be made. Callahan suggests that givers tend to display exoticism during and after
their act of giving to the less advantage Callahan (, 2017). The fact that the givers are wealthy is
outstanding and attractive in the society they intend to provide. This is due to the large sums of
money they have to do such charity works. Singer opposes the exoticism characteristic by offering
new ideas on a better way of giving without attracting too much attention. Instead, the givers are
appreciated for the good deeds they have done to their society. The case of William Ackman is
indeed positive to Singer’s EA. Bill Ackman is an activist investor. He purchases the standard
supplies of public organizations and pushes for changes with the goal that the market can
understand the estimations of the organizations, Singer (2015). Ackman purchases stocks
exchanging at a discount and sells when they arrive at their evaluated esteem value. The actions
rhyme with Singer’s EA qualities of giving.
