What people are saying about
The Life You Can Save and Peter Singer

The Life You Can Save is a valuable resource for anyone with even a budding interest in improving our world. Peter Singer and TLYCS team have done remarkable work enabling any individual with access to the internet to participate in a Giving Game, pledge a percentage of their income to highly-effective charities and nurture an interest in effective philanthropy that will persist and grow over a lifetime. With technology both radically increasing the number of individuals who can participate in philanthropy and empowering these givers to be even more effective, TLYCS stands squarely among the best resources of its kind!

A persuasive and inspiring work that will change the way you think about philanthropy... Peter Singer challenges everyone of us to do more, to be smarter about the ways we go about giving, and shows us that, working together, we can make a profound difference in the lives of the world's poorest.

I'm thrilled to be part of The Life You Can Save community. Giving has changed my life for the better, and it's inspiring to see so many people realizing the same.

The Life You Can Save is a terrific resource to help all of us figure out how to do the most good in our charitable lives. It provides valuable insight into how to turn practical ethics into concrete action. Their website is a great place to stop by as you think through your annual philanthropy. Doing so is part of my plan.
