Are you wasting money by donating to a charity? And is it worth it to start your own charity? We talk with Alicia Gettys who is the Director of Communications at BYU’s Ballard Center for Economic Self-Reliance. We talk about what makes a good charity and what makes one bad. Finally, Alicia gives us the framework for what it takes to start your own social venture.
If you’d like to make positive social change, here are some resources we talk about:

- If you’re already part of a charity and you’d like to improve it, here’s a free training course called Human-Centered Design: www.designkit.org/resources/5
