This is a picture of me and my best friend in the world, Ken. Sadly, Ken passed away in the early days of fall in 2017. I miss him dearly. This picture makes me smile, and I post it here because this is one of the rare photos I have where Ken actually consented to having his face shown in a picture.
But this post isn’t about pictures of my friend and I. It is about GiveWell, and doing good in the world. So why am I promoting GiveWell? The answer is simple. I want to do something in the memory of my friend. Ken wanted our memories of him to be associated with doing good in the world, and he thought giving money to GiveWell was a good way to do good in the world. What is GiveWell? Here is what they say on their website:
GiveWell is a nonprofit dedicated to finding outstanding giving opportunities and publishing the full details of our analysis to help donors decide where to give.
GiveWell sets out to determine the best bang for your charitable buck, so to speak. So help me honour my friend’s memory by considering donating to GiveWell. GiveWell does not keep any portion of the donations it receives. 100% of every donation goes to the charities featured on its website.
After you have donated, please feel free to download a Bingo Card and play along as I cycle across the country!
