โฌ… Back to Notes

When I started to look more seriously into giving back in 2019, I stumbled across these three big ideas (these ideas are better described in the book, The Life You Can Save):

I was excited about these ideas because it changed my whole perspective on philanthropy. The realization that Iโ€™m actually very fortunate and that I could have a real impact on people is empowering. It turns out that I donโ€™t need to go into medicine or become a teacher to make a difference. While Iโ€™m not planning on giving 50% of my income (article), Iโ€™m very much into the concept of earning to give.

I wrote more about it here.
