Wes Boyd: A hundred billion dollars to give away? Mmm. It will seem like a lack of imagination, but I really don’t respond to the question mentally. It’s . . . It’s . . . I don’t think what we’re lacking is resources. I think what we’re lacking is . . . is the will and the passion – or connecting the will and the passion – to where it needs to go. So Move On, for example, doesn’t go out fundraising. We raise all our money from . . . from wealthy . . . from wealthy contributors. We raise all our money from $25 donors and $40 donors, because most of the work of the organization is through those people. And getting them to make a commitment of their time and money is what’s most important. It’s really not about money. It’s really about us putting our attention to these important things.
