I am thrilled that you’d like to make a donation in support of my Living on Less challenge. Here’s how to donate:

  1. Donate to the Against Malaria Foundation and support their life-saving work, or use the links below to donate to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, Deworm the World or GiveDirectly (these have different links for tax-deductibility by country).
  2. Tell me how much you donated so I can keep a tally (leave a message to join the list of awesome people below)
  3. Feel great knowing you’ve made a meaningful difference in the world.

If you’re interested, read more about the charities I’m supporting. If you’re not in Australia, see below for links to make a tax deductible donation in your country. And I highly recommend you check out my blog for more information about my Living on Less challenge. And again: thank you!

More about the charities & donation link by country

You can donate to the GiveWell recommended charities using the links below.

The money goes directly to evidence-backed, thoroughly vetted, underfunded organisations. These include interventions from anti-malarial bednets right through to deworming programs or direct cash transfers. All of which are high impact causes for alleviating poverty.

GiveWell recommend charities according to how much good additional donations can do. They examine charities’ overall quality and cost-effectiveness, as well as what more funding would enable them to do.

Some of the buttons ask that you specify which charity in which case I encourage you to take the time to read about the charities and select the one you like most.

The easiest option is to donate directly to AMF which has a credit card facility and is tax-deductible in many countries.
