Combined Stonnington Cluster Dinner meeting

Date

From: Wednesday March 6, 2019, 6:00 pm

To: Wednesday March 6, 2019, 8:00 pm

The LIfe You Can Save organization was founded by Peter Singer, widely recognized as one of the world's most influential contemporary philosophers. We advance the ideas in his 2009 book, The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty, which Bill and Melinda Gates described as "A persuasive and inspiring work that will change the way you think about philanthropy."
In it, Peter argues that if we can provide immense benefit to someone at minimal cost to ourselves, we should do so (illustrated by his famous Girl in the Pond thought experiment). And since there are charities that dramatically improve, or even save, the lives of people living in extreme poverty on less than $1.90 USD per day for relatively little cost to ourselves, living an ethical life includes supporting such highly effective organizations.
