A.J. Jacobs is raising money for Helen Keller International.






A.J. Jacobs is fundraising for Helen Keller International's Vitamin A Supplementation Program

Hello! My name is A.J. Jacobs and I'm excited to be giving to a wonderful charity - Helen Keller International's Vitamin A Supplementation Program.

This is a charity that works to reduce malnturition and blindness in Sub-Saharan Africa and there is strong evidence that it is an effective and high impact program. It's been endorsed by the folks at GiveWell, an organisation of which I am a big fan.

So today on Effective Giving Day, I am donating $5000 to Helen Keller International's program and I will provide matching donations, for any donations up to a total of an additional $5000.

Thank you and happy holidays!
