The Power of Half

This story--about a privileged family that collectively decided to give half its wealth away, and everyone (including the kids) got an equal vote in selling the family's house--has struck a deep chord in these difficult economic times. I first heard about this uniquely inspiring family on NPR, but there's also been a book and plenty of media coverage about their story. We'd love to hear your thoughts about it.

These are definitely bold and inspiring people. Thanks for bringing them to my attention. I personally prefer when I can to donate anonymously, but clearly part of what they're fired up about is becoming examples for others.

That's a good point about what fires them up.
