Just over a year ago today I took a lifetime pledge to give 10% of my pre-tax income to whichever organisations I believe can most effectively use my money to improve the lives of others.
It wasn’t an easy decision but a year on I am absolutely confident it was the right one.
I wanted to write this post to anyone who’s thinking about whether or not to donate a significant portion of their income to effective causes. Before taking the pledge I had a lot of questions and doubts. I speak to many people with the same questions I had so I wanted to try and answer some of them honestly and openly so that people can decide for themselves.
