The Ultimate Aim of A Charity

"Is continuous growth the hallmark of a successful charity? No, it’s just the opposite – the ultimate aim of a charity is to be extinct."

Paul Dunn has brought this to our attention.. a quote from Doing Good Well: What Does (and Does Not) Make Sense in the Nonprofit World by Willie Cheng

What an obviously beautiful statement. Of course charity should not eventuate in big business.. although big business must be involved in charity otherwise where is its heart?
But for a charity to have any other aim but to be put 'out of business' is a completely erroneous goal.
Let us all steer for charity to become a thing of the past and world wide wealth a reality.
