Aug. 5, 2010 - PRLog -- Bill Gates and Buffet convinced 40 billionaires pledge to give away at least half their wealth to philanthropy as reported on http://www.amareway.org While Buffett is pleased that half of those contacted so far have risen to the occasion, he also says there are many more people to recruit, and he plans to urge others to join the giving campaign through dinners similar to the first hosted in May 2009. “We’re off to a terrific start,” he says.

Some billionaires approached by the country’s two richest men have already rejected the idea, some for political reasons, because they believed in keeping the money in the family, or just because they were too busy. Some reasons may also include accountability, transparency and especially effectiveness. Billionaires may want to bring into philanthropy a result-oriented attitude, which is positive; AmAre formula http://www.amareway.org can be used both by beneficiaries and philanthropists. When it comes to effectiveness, inspired by Maslow’s pyramid, we see that in some contexts, philanthropy is about improving the way physiological needs are served, in others the way the need for personal actualization is facilitated. When it comes to efficiency, philanthropists can rank the priorities by perceived importance for the beneficiaries, and then dedicate their efforts to the ones which are both important and meet the investors current strengths, not only in terms of financing, but also in terms of transferable skills.

A model to quantify this can be seen on: http://spsh.amareway.org/

AmAre Way: authentic happiness formula, art of happiness, living joyfully, cultivating subjective well-being. AmAre stands for: Aware (being), Meditating, Active (being), Respectful (being), Eating properly. Steps to happiness. AmAre in Italian means "to love". And also interconnectedness: (I) Am (we) Are.
