The Social Good Summit was this past week; such a great conference bringing together change agents and leaders all over the globe to share new initiatives and ideas.  Here is a compilation of highlights from mashable, bloggers, YouTube and Pinterest we found over the internet. 

Philanthropy is about using the resources you have at your fingertips to improve the world.

--@MelindaGates

The Internet is allowing for us to really experience people in some of the most distant places in the world — as other people just like us. So get to know people, seek out bloggers from a country you’re kind of curious about. It’s about building empathy and breaking through to the point of recognizing people as people.

-- Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia
