So does the money go directly to the people in need, or organizations that you've vetted to make sure will actually do good with it? Thanks for doing this AMA :)

Thank you for the great response :) Maybe I’m just double-tapping, but I remember reading a book that basically asserted people respond far less to logic than they do to emotion and how they feel about something. How did you bridge that gap/appeal to their emotionality or how they felt about what was at hand?

I love your last point because it reminds me a lot of the one made in The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck. That is, how one defines success. By many people’s margins, Dave Mustaine was a huge success, but he allegedly felt like a failure because he had never outdone his old band Metallica. Very important point to consider.

Thanks for doing this ama!

One of my personal worries is that it's becoming more acceptable to be racist against white people, and/or making them more fearful of speaking lest they offend someone (that is, when they are not actually being offensive).

I've personally witnessed it in a couple of my white friends, that seemed to adopt a kind of unconscious trepidation and habit of disclaimers if the subject even just seemed sensitive. And to be sure, they were/are very much not racist people.

And while I can advocate for the kind of hesitation adopted when someone doesn't feel they're knowledgeable enough about a subject, the other kind of hesitation just feels more like fear.
