AsianWeek » Giving, the Asian Way

AsianWeek » Giving, the Asian Way: "In Asian cultures, money is not something spoken about or dealt with in the open. It’s discussed at the family dinner table or whispered about over drinks.

Perhaps, then, it’s no surprise that Asian American philanthropy Los-Angeles-Business-Elite Sep-07 is somewhat hidden in the community.
