Q: I've started a nonprofit to assist children in South America. When I give my fundraising pitch, some people say, "There are poor people in America—why aren't you doing something for them?" Please help me find the right words so I can keep doing what I'm doing without guilt.

A: "Tell them: 'You're right—we do have poor people in America. I'd love it if you want to start here and I'll start down there and we'll meet in the middle.'"
