How I used my passion to raise money for charity
Headshots are a pesky thing that pretty much everyone needs, but no one actually wants to get. I developed a series of fundraising events under the DWD brand, called Headshots 4 Hunger. Within a month, I had scheduled events in nine locations throughout St. Louis. I made sure that each location was easily accessible to entrepreneurs, artists and college students. So far, I have been able to fund two of The Life You Can Save’s recommended charities, the Iodine Global Network and Project Healthy Children, to help reduce micronutrient deficiency for an estimated 12,900 people for an entire year.

This legislative act could end newborn and maternal deaths by 2030
The most important aspect of the Reach Act is that it would give a single leader at USAID the power to focus resources on the most effective interventions. This strategy has already allowed USAID to save millions more lives by prioritizing what works. Other global health initiatives, like the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), have had deeper impact using this leadership structure. The potential benefits of this approach are massive - the US already spends plenty of money on global health, but we could accomplish much more if this money was targeted on interventions like vaccines, which we know are effective.
What you need to know about global hunger
The average American household gives $2,974 to charity each year. How far could that amount go to alleviating hunger and malnutrition in the developing world?
GiveDirectly interviewed cash recipients and their neighbors. Here's what we found out.
The result is a set of portraits that are as complex as human life, with a range of emotions and experiences from the happy to the sad, the humbling to the inspiring. In the end, we think the overall collage speaks to the power of cash transfers and the good they can do for families and communities. But we encourage you to spend time looking through these and drawing your own conclusions.

This holiday season, we've had supporters ask friends and family to give a gift to GiveDirectly recipients rather than to them. If you're so inclined, we hope sharing the words of our recipients and non-recipients helps you convey to friends and family why.
Tapping Skeptic Hearts Through Giving Games
“If others have half the experience I had today, they will be completely changed.” That’s what a participant told me after the end of a Giving Game I facilitated that aimed to engage people’s emotions in making a decision about where to donate.

We’re adding One Acre Fund to our list of best charities. Here’s why
We’re excited to announce the addition of One Acre Fund to our 2016 list of best charities. Subsistence agriculture accounts for the largest economic activity in the developing world, and a majority of the global poor rely on small-scale farming to support themselves and their families. This means that helping farmers succeed is one of the best ways to reduce global hunger and bring economic revenue to some of the world’s poorest communities. One Acre Fund empowers farmers to increase their crop harvests and farm profitability, and in the process, helps reduce hunger in remote regions in East Africa. By 2020, One Acre Fund projects that farmers in their program will help produce a food surplus great enough to feed an additional 5 million of their neighbors.
