Help us spread the word about giving more and giving more effectively.
It’s exciting to realise that we could all multiply our impact by raising awareness about the good we can achieve by donating to the best organisations.
It turns out that by far the most common way people first hear about us is through their friends. So it could be that one of the best ways to help beyond donating is to simply talk with friends and family about effective giving.
To help with getting started, we’ve collected together some resources:
- How to approach the conversation about Giving What We Can - a summary of general tips from talking to our members
- Members’ experiences - members sharing their experiences in their own words
- Key facts and resources - a summary of the most useful facts and links
- Myths about aid and charity - addressing key concerns about aid and charity
Here are some other ways you could help:
- During December and January, support the Giving What We Can pledge campaigns.
- Like us on Facebook
- Share our posts on social media - we're also on Twitter and LinkedIn
- Fundraise for effective charities and mention us
- Write to a local newspaper about pledging. See here for an example
- Write about us on a blog
- Give a talk to your work / religious group / Sunday Assembly about effective giving. Feel free to use this basic slide presentation as a starting point! For inspiration take a look at Jonathan Courtney’s TEDx talk, though note that as this was an older talk it focused only on global poverty. We've made the slides and transcript available here
