Maggie Doyne takes us from New Jersey to the majestic mountains of Nepal where she saw a problem and couldn’t look away.

“Love is the thing in life that can cause you the most horrific, terrible pain, but it’s also the only thing on the planet that can heal you.”

Philanthropist Maggie Doyne spoke at CreativeMornings/NYC in July 2016 to speak on the global theme of Love. In her moving talk, Maggie takes us from New Jersey to the majestic mountains of Nepal where she saw a problem and couldn’t look away. With a meager savings, a big heart, and the support of her community, she built a home for Nepalese children, and along the way, redefined her understanding of love.

Wow, this is really inspiring stuff. Can u imagine if there weren't any White people vacationing in South Asia lol they would prob all b ded by now. As a White Man, I now feel compelled - nay, obliged - to travel the world and fix all of its problems.

As my kid's favorite hero Spider-Man would say: With great power comes great responsibility and in my case my power is being Caucasian lol
