    The Philanthropy Challenge requires students to undertake as many home or school ‘chores’ such as setting the table, unpacking the dishwasher, walking the dog, washing the car, vacuuming the house, carrying teacher books, cleaning the classroom or school yard as they can get over a 10 week term. There is an unlimited list of ‘chores. OCMQG partners with Orangewood Foundation. Throughout the year we create multiple quilts at our Monthly Sew-Ins.

We tend to think of philanthropy as unequivocally good, but as the contributors to this book show, philanthropy is also an exercise of power.
