Meaning What You Say

We’ve looked at ill-defined terminology before. The non-profit sector not only loves its jargon (MEAL policy, anyone?) but what about those popular — and hazy — words that sound like they really nail something on the head, but upon closer inspection collapse under the weight of their lofty ambitions. ‘Building capacity’ or ‘sustainability’ or ‘delivering impact’ (ack!) are all suspect terms and rightfully so. They’re overused and defined so broadly as to become meaningless. I’ll offer up ‘empowerment’ to demonstrate what I mean.

Saigon Cyclo Challenge


This year’s Saigon Cyclo Challenge organised by Saigon Children’s Charity at Celadon City (Tan Phu) attracted around 2,000 attendees and raised almost US$25,000 to support Saigon Children’s Charity in its mission of ‘Eliminating Poverty through Education’. Working towards its 25th Anniversary next year (1992 to 2017), SCC is aiming to provide 2,500 scholarships and build 16 schools during 2016.

Just. (Consciously.) Do. It.

Researchers in several different experiments have hooked up the brains of people while donating to their favourite charity and — whammo! — did the scientists have their socks knocked off. The test subjects’ brains lit up, mimicking the same physiological reaction as using cocaine or nicotine. I always thought doing charity was a trip, but it turns out, for some it’s addictive. Those warm fuzzies (the feel-good factor) are very real.
