It's not commonly known that the most skeptical and critical people usually have a strong sentimental streak...at least if I can extrapolate from introspection.... So here goes for what Aid Watch is sincerely thankful for:
For the largest reduction in world poverty in human history, which has already happened in our generation.
For the largest improvement in health and life expectancy in human history, which has already happened in our generation.
For all those who contributed to these successes: whether individuals operating in private, social, nonprofit, charitable, civic, public, aid, or international realms.
For all those who helped themselves and those around them escape poverty through their own efforts.
