You’re Probably Bad at Choosing Charities

by Christopher Paul on December 3, 2014

It's that time of year where there's a bell ringer on practically every block looking for spare change. It's also a time many donate food, clothing, and dollars to charitable organizations who help serve the less fortunate. But Jason Kuznicki explains how many people are "bad" at giving.

His point is that, while giving something to a charity is better than nothing, more lives can be saved or altered by avoiding the more recognizable organizations in the US or being more efficient with the types of donations provided. If you do give something other than your time to charity this holiday season, Kuznicki recommends looking up some impactful organizations who could save millions of children from disease and death from measles, malaria, and tuberculosis at GiveWell's charity evaluator.
