Welcome to our October 2021 Newsletter!


With the 2021 giving season fast approaching we invite you to use this time to spread the word about effective giving.

Here's what you can do to help:

We hope you enjoy the rest of this newsletter, which covers our upcoming online events, the latest from the effective altruism community, and news and updates about relevant cause areas.

5 years ago today I took the @givingwhatwecan pledge to donate 10% of my income to the world's most effective charities (via @GiveWell @EA_Aus). I'm both proud and grateful that I've been able to do my bit for the world. It's been awesome: 1,826 days without a single regret.
