“We realize that what we are accomplishing is a drop in the ocean. But if this drop were not in the ocean, it would be missed.”
— Mother Theresa
It’s wonderful to see so many people across the world giving what they can to help survivors in Southeast Asia and Benjamin Rosenbaum has put together some research* on the efficiency of various charities. It’s not something that’s discussed much but as we’ll all be digging deep over the coming months it’s a good idea to make sure that your money is going to a charity that disperses funds effectively and (if it bothers you) doesn’t do the God thing.
