What is the purpose of giving?

Last year, we showed this short video (~21 minutes) to our Board members, and most agreed that it made a big impact upon how they viewed the concept of "giving" usually commonplace in a school setting. For example, we all are familiar with canned food drives, clothing donations, etc., but how effective are these actions in alleviating the conditions that give rise to the problems? Please watch and be prepared to share your thoughts.
