As the New Year approaches people are beginning to think about their New Year resolutions. I still haven’t decided mine so I’d love suggestions in the comments. I have weekly and monthly goals and a Day Zero List to keep up with so I already have a few resolutions to keep.
One thing I would thoroughly recommend as a New Year’s resolution is to pledge a percentage of your income to charity. Last New Year I took the Giving What We Can Try Giving pledge and donated 5% of my pre-tax income to the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative.
This felt like such a valuable contribution I soon took the full Giving What We Can 10% pledge and I’ve not looked back since.
