The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty by Peter Singer

One charity I found particularly inspiring in this book is the Worldwide Fistula Fund, an organization that helps women who are injured through childbirth or violence in a way that is treatable, but often ignored.

Please, please, please watch this video. It is amazing.

You are reading uplifting material and I’m reading poo. If I weren’t so tired, I’d be ashamed of myself.

Inspiring, but not uplifting. I’ve just spend the last hour sobbing over this “A Walk To Beautiful” Video and finishing up this book.

Sounds like an amazing book! I read a book about the economics of solving poverty, is this a more personal approach?
