About one year since we spoke, I followed up with aid workers from the +World Food Programme  to talk about how they are managing to feed Syrians inside and outside the country now that the Syrian war is in its fifth year. They told me they're taking in less money and "can't function in emergency mode for too long." WFP workers from ‪#‎Lebanon‬, ‪#‎Jordan‬ and ‪#‎Syria‬ shared their emotions and stories: http://cbsn.ws/1xu6Y45 // +CBS News

If you give to charities (especially during the holidays) you are going to want to check this out! My latest piece on "intelligent giving."

"Charitable giving starts from the heart and it always should, and your passion and what you care about should always be a part of it so we're not in anyway suggesting you take the heart away. All we're saying is add the head so you don't get heart-broken." - Ken Berger, president and CEO of +Charity Navigator a nonprofit that rates 8,000 U.S.-based charities operating around the world.
