Giving What We Can

Earlier this year, I mentioned the website givingwhatwecan.org, in a post about overseas development assistance.

Earlier this week, the BBC published an article about Tony Orb, who created that website. (Thanks Felicity for sending me the link.)


It's a timely reminder, in this supposed "season of giving", of how well off we are, and of how small sacrifices on our part can make a big difference to the lives of others, who aren't so fortunate.

Watch Tony explain why he has decided to give away a million pounds over his lifetime to help address global poverty.
