Humans of New York: a one-person philanthropy machine. You may not know his name, but you'll definitely have seen his ubiquitous photos and moving stories somewhere on your Instagram timeline. In New York Magazine, Lisa Miller introduces us to the creator of the popular publication and discovers the life and drive behind this extraordinary philanthropic work. "I wasn't at Stanton's house for 20 minutes before he started to cry. When he interviews people, he always starts with, "What is your biggest struggle right now?" And when I posed that question to him, he began by describing how difficult it was to attain his success and how single-minded he had been in the pursuit of it."
