What Does It Mean to Be a Humanitarian - Adam Carter

In Chapter 2 of 16, micro-philanthropist Adam Carter provides his definition of what it means to be a humanitarian. Carter urges individuals to look beyond defining the word based on humanitarian organizations and think more about the word root, specifically the common humanity amongst society members. By acting on this common bond, built upon equal rights and shared fears, desires, and experiences, Carter captures the meaning of humanitarian purpose. Carter has been pursuing humanitarian work since graduating from the University of Michigan and is the founder of non-profit foundation Cause and Affect (http://www.causeandaffectfoundation.org/).
