    Re: Philonthropic leanings

    Hi r_hari52,

    You have to replace only one letter: namely o by a. The proper English word is philanthropic.

    philanthropic = of or concerned with charity: altruistic, benevolent, charitable, eleemosynary, philanthropical

    Her volunteer work over the years included serving on the board of directors of Common Sense, a program to encourage philanthropic leanings in children; serving on the advisory committee of an exchange program for French and American students; assisting with fund raising for the Union Settlement Association, an East Harlem social-service organization, and founding a program called Art Tours for Children. She also was a docent at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    Regards.

    V.
