Mari Kuraishi has proved that, thanks to the Internet, everyone can be a philanthropist — and the giant development institutions no longer have a monopoly on efforts to improve the lot of the world’s poorest. In 2000, the Japanese native left a successful career at the World Bank to found GlobalGiving — a website she describes as an “eBay for philanthropy” that revolutionized the field by connecting a worldwide community of donors with ventures in need of funding. A decade later, hundreds of thousands of donors have pooled their funds — the average donation is around $25 — to give more than $50 million to more than 4,500 projects. see also http://www.theglasshammer.com/news/2009/01/23/mari-kuraishi-and-the-global-giving-foundation/
