The pleasure of giving

It’s a yearly tradition now, where I go on about how the best part about being a moderator in Stack Exchange network of sites is when you get to donate to any charity of your choice from the short list.

Nothing has changed. Despite the many awesome things that I get to witness in the community, the one thing that gives me utmost happiness is when I click the ‘Submit’ button to the “Giving Back” Charity form after making my selection. The pleasure, I feel, is more with the person who is giving rather than with the person who is receiving.

And so, this year, I have chosen to donate my share of $100 to Doctors Without Borders (MSF – Médecins Sans Frontières) and feel quite good about doing so. Thank you Stack Exchange for giving me this opportunity.
