Nipun Mehta, founder of CharityFocus.org, refuses to relate
to “be the change” as just another inspiring
expression. Profoundly moved by his insights into the emptiness
of material wealth, Mehta (who some have called a cross between
saint and motivational speaker) abandoned a lucrative career in
Silicon Valley to donate all of his time and high-tech skills to
help nonprofit organizations in their efforts to help others.
Mehta's passion for service and natural ability to inspire
selfless action in others has expanded the scope of his
organization and its mission far beyond mere technical web
support. It has become a global source of volunteers and of the
spirit of volunteerism—a ubiquitous force of selfless action in the material world.
