March 3rd - Wait…we just realized that March 9th is upon us this week. As you likely know, 172 years ago, on March 9th, Verdi's third opera, Nabucco, opened in Milan. We know nothing about Verdi or Nabucco. Or Milan. But, it's incredibly likely that the opening of Nabucco spurred a new era of philanthropy in Italy that still has ripple effects on all of us today. So, the next time you start a fundraiser or ask your friends to give a cause you're so passionate about, try to mention Verdi and Nabucco. It may be meaningless but it will be meaningless in such a good way that you're likely to raise $90,000. Okay, I think that covers it. And, as always, so sorry if you were made slightly dumber for having read this.
