Jeff Skoll on Story-telling & Social Change

If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. — Barry Lopez

Good News of the Day:
One of Jeff Skoll’s passions is storytelling. It stems from his youth, when he hoped to be a writer and inspire people to help solve the world’s biggest problems. Skoll took a detour on that path when he met Pierre Omidyar and became eBay’s first employee and president. Ultimately that detour enabled him to tackle his early passions on a scale that he could only have dreamed of before. He is famed not just for the fortune he made, but also the fortune he continues to give away in innovative ways. In this interview with the Stanford Social Innovation Review he discusses his wide-ranging philanthropic efforts.

Be The Change:
Consider the stories that have helped inspire and shape you. Find a way to share them with the world.
