Really like the blog, appreciate the share!

Thanks for the comment! You bring up a great point. Every generation of immigrants, regardless of ethnicity, is more likely to give back to their own communities and home countries. However compared to western cultures, Asians show a greater care and concern for their families and communities, which is rooted in culture and eastern philosophy, generally speaking. This makes it more likely that Asian Americans will give back to them first. With later generations (3rd,4th, 5th, and so on) Asian Americans is probably similar to Americans in their philanthropy, and give more to mainstream causes. There is currently no research to see if this true or not, but my hunch is that it is the case.

I do not see much of difference of Asian American for giving as many of other people. They would like to support their own community and home country, which is most of people do in the western countries. Do you thing there is cultural or social roots of Asian People for giving which make us different with other people?
