Adele and James’ Wedding Fundraiser
James and Adele
We’re raising funds for GiveDirectly, a global nonprofit that lets you give money directly to people living in extreme poverty with no strings attached. GiveDirectly believes (and so do we!) that people living in poverty deserve to choose for themselves how best to improve their lives — cash enables that choice.
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 organisations 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. When it comes to choosing the kind of impact we want our philanthropic donations to have, this approach makes sense to us. We hope it makes sense to you, too.
