The only thing more high-impact than tennis champion Marcus Daniell’s serve is his philanthropy and his mission to encourage other athletes to give.

An Olympic bronze medallist with five ATP titles, Marcus realized he had a unique opportunity to help the less-fortunate not only by donating but by using his platform to spread the word. In 2020, he co-founded High Impact Athletes to encourage other high-profile athletes to follow his example.

In this episode, Charlie and Marcus talk about treating all Earth’s creatures with respect, whether human, furry, feathered, or finned. In addition to human poverty, they touch on factory farming and climate change initiatives which can help make the world a place of less suffering for all.

Be sure you check out the website, to find a running tally of human and animal lives improved, tonnes of CO2e mitigated, and money influenced towards non-profit giving.

High Impact Athletes works with “12 of the most effective charities in the world,” ensuring each donation goes as far and helps as many as it possibly can. And with a roster of more than 180 athletes representing 40 sports and 31 countries, HIA is doing a lot.

Listen to this fascinating conversation around why we give or don’t. As you might imagine, the reasons are complex, rooted in human psychology, tinged with fear and cognitive dissonance, and seasoned with a lack of cultural pressure, thanks to an idea called the “diffusion of responsibility.”
