Charitable giving: ten over one hundred

Today's Chronicle Magazine also has an article about James Hong's latest venture: ten over one hundred.

James Hong and Josh Blumenstock, who works for James at HOT or NOT, started this venture -- based on an idea they brainstormed -- to encourage and facilitate charitable giving.

We know how much we're supposed to tip the waiter, why aren't there similar rules of etiquette about giving?

James is a neighbor and a good guy. He's already made his pledge.
