Give Directly this Holiday!
It is the giving season!
I’m raising funds for GiveDirectly, a global nonprofit that lets you give money directly to people living in extreme poverty with no strings attached.
I consider myself a reluctant fundraiser, but it’s a cause I believe in from an evidence-based organization. I encourage you to consider allocating some of your annual giving to GD because direct giving has been proven to be one of the most effective way to give.
For people living on a dollar or two per day, receiving cash can be life-changing. It enables families to cover their needs and invest how they choose, instead of aid organizations deciding for them.
Hundreds of independent studies show that cash transfers can help drive a range of positive impacts through increased earnings, access to education, health improvements, and much more.
