“AOL Time Warner has found a new way to help its employees get to know each other better while doing something meaningful: It’s bringing them together in small groups to pool their money—anywhere from $25 each and up—and then give it away. The groups are called giving circles, and in helping to form them, AOL has jumped aboard one of the hottest new trends in philanthropy.”
