“Can we save some of the 14,790 children dying every day? The answer is: Yes, we can.”
We make “smart giving simple” by curating a group of nonprofits that save or improve the most lives per dollar. We aim to create a world where everyone has an opportunity to build a better life and where there’s no suffering or death due to extreme poverty.
Peter Singer's 1972 article "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" has changed the lives of countless people around the world. Our own organization was named after a book that expanded on ideas first voiced in this landmark article, like the idea that just as it would be wrong to leave a child to drown in a shallow pond, so it is wrong to fail to help a child - or an adult for that matter - living in a low-income country who is at risk of dying from preventable, poverty-related causes. To commemorate 50 years since its publication, "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" is now available as a unique Non-Fungible Token. Proceeds will benefit The Life You Can Save, and the buyer will receive a special opportunity: a 30-minute Zoom call with Peter Singer! The auction only runs through December 9, so place your bid for this unique NFT immediately!See the NFT
