Greed Vs charity

Ben Gibson




Giving Tuesday is meant to impress upon exhausted shoppers a sense of charity after tirelessly searching for deals throughout the widely recognized holiday shopping events known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday: an absolute about-face. If shoppers have a little extra money, they are encouraged through platforms like social media and the like to rectify their discounted splurging on personal gain with a smidgen of charity. There is a vast array of charities accepting aid, however. How can a prospective donor know which organization to supply with their hard earned cash? A nonprofit called Give Well may offer a few suggestions.

Many people consider giving to charity an act of sympathy, and many primarily use their emotions when deciding which organization to give to. Tragic pictures and videos of suffering people or animals move us to act and we feel before we think. It is possible we neglect the use of our brains and their analytical skills when giving to charity.

It is common for people to donate close to home in hopes of having an impact on those in their community, perhaps because they wish to see the impact their contribution has made.

An organization founded by Elie Hassenfeld aims to offer a new mechanism for donating: Give Well. They intend to suggest charities that will benefit the greatest from your money and maximize its effectiveness.

They investigate charities and produce evidence to be able to suggest a charity that would benefit the most from donations. They strongly suggest that your donation dollars should be going overseas to underdeveloped countries to directly aid suffering organizations and individuals. They suggest that money would be better received and more effective overseas towards struggling countries.

One such organization they praise and say would benefit the most from donations is The against Malaria Foundation.
