The Life You Can Save Adelaide chapter ran Doing the Most Good on the 8th of December, which featured presentations by representatives of Oxfam and the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF), two of The Life You Can Save’s recommended charities. The video footage of the event can be watched here. This post involves a brief discussion of how we organised the event, with a more detailed analysis of the different advertising methods that we used to increase audience turnout.
How to run a Giving Game and start a local chapter
By Michael Dello-Iacovo

I was recently involved with running a Giving Game in Adelaide to help kick start a new local chapter in Australia. We introduced the concepts of effective altruism and discussed why it is important to consider the effectiveness of charities. We then summarized the work of two highly effective Australian charities, The Fred Hollows Foundation and Oxfam Australia. After dividing the audience into small groups to discuss which charity they thought was most effective, we held a vote to determine the winner. The Life You Can Save had agreed to donate $10 per attendee to the winning charity to give people incentive to think critically.
