I heard an interview on radio the other day. A man was touting his charitable activities in Africa that only cost $38 per person.

The interviewer asked something like this: “If what you are doing is helping to solve the problem in Africa, then why do things seem to just keep getting worse in Africa?”

Bottom line, it doesn’t matter how good it looks or how enthusiastic you are about whatever is your project — that won’t change the reality of whether or not your action is helping.

Before you actually DO something, you should THINK about the good and the bad of what you might be adding to the mix.
