Some political subreddits are setting aside some differences to raise money for Deworm The World.
There are more than 870 million children at risk of parasitic worm infections worldwide, and schistosomiasis in particular affected *more than 250 million people* just in 2015. This is a disease impacting hundreds of millions people with devastating impacts, but a disease the Western media and Western charities usually ignore, because the idea of humans getting worms is so foreign to our experiences.
GiveWell.org rates DeWorm the world as one of their top charities, indicating that donations to DTW have more impact per dollar donated than just about anything else. Donating $10 can treat 12 children suffering from this horrible disease.
