Vanity Fair Poll on Charity


In the November 2013 issue of Vanity Fair the 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll is dedicated to "Sweet Charity".  Interestingly, people say they believe time (85%) is more valuable to give than money (11%).  Eighty-five percent also say they would give millions away anonymously instead of wanting to be recognized. Then why is there no college campus building called Anonymous Hall?

Many of the questions are plain silly, involving celebrities, of course.  This poll would have been more meaningful if they compared what people say they do with what organizations that track philanthropy say people actually do.
