THE STORY:

Please join me in supporting “Give Directly,” an organization that has been ranked as one of the world’s most effective charities. Give Directly works by providing direct cash transfers to the world’s poorest families, and is absolutely unparalleled in its transparency and proof of impact.


What does this mean for you and me?: When we donate to Give Directly, we know that not only is the absolute maximum amount of our money going directly to those who need it, but because of how urgently the money is needed, even the smallest donations can have life-changing impacts.


What does this mean for others?: Five years after receiving transfers, recipients’ yearly earnings were shown to have increased by 64%–96% of the grant amount. Children whose families received cash transfers experienced higher school attendance, fewer days without food, and improvements in health (including height and weight for their age) as well as lower rates of mother to child HIV transmission.


Those who Give Directly will support with our donations deal regularly with difficulties that we cannot imagine. With all that we are lucky enough to have, they should not have to.


Please check out the Give Directly website for more information: http://www.givedirectly.org/evidence.php
Thank you so much in advance for your support and generosity!

I saw you across the room at a movie premiere, but you talked to that schmuck from House of Cards instead of me. Heartbroken, I fled. Til we meet again, my dearest Katie. 3 years ago
