For most of us, charity is a choice—each of us has their own relationship to generosity. But at Symphony, we have a saying: nothing is someone else’s problem. We feel a responsibility not just for what’s in front of us, but what’s around us. Because it’s all connected.

One of those texts was relevant to one of those open windows, but who can remember? Those apps don’t speak to each other and besides, you’re absorbed in another app’s UI.
