“All of our lives are chaotic and random. If we can find some way to connect to a cause, we can give it [our lives] some overlying purpose.” Kristof explained. “I think we know that helping people is harder than it looks,” Kristof admitted, “but we can have an effect and that’s profoundly reassuring.” He added that, “I’ve become a believer in drops in the bucket.” WuDunn and Kristof were asked, what can college students do to make a difference? “You don’t have to just give - there’s advocacy,” WuDunn said. She told students to, “Look into something you care about [. . .] Follow an interest you have. Do it with friends.” Kristof recommended using Facebook and Twitter as platforms for advocacy.
