In Their Own Words

The Life You Can Save is based on the belief—expounded upon in the work of its founder, philosopher Peter Singer—that an ethical life involves using some of our wealth and resources to protect and improve the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. Their mission is to change the culture of giving in affluent countries, including dramatically raising annual donations to highly impactful nonprofits—e.g. a list of Recommended Charities—that reduce suffering and premature death, and improve livelihoods, for people living in extreme poverty around the world.
