Why I’m Writing About Charity Today
I’m sure that some of you will stop reading this post very quickly. It was maybe not what you were expecting to see here this morning. Fair enough. For everyone else, here I go:) I’ve been fortunate to start writing on this blog a few years ago. Since then, I’ve received so much amazing feedback, questions and even suggestions that have helped me become a better writer/communicator, a better trader and hopefully have also helped me become a better person as well.
Today, I’d like to give back to the world, do my part. Trading is about making money and I think that for many of us, one thing we hope to do with that money is to be able to give some or even most of it away to noble causes that will help make the world a better.
What is Charity Water
One of the growing trends on the internet is minimalism. Clearly, we do not need that much to live a decent life. One thing that all of us, no matter where we are need though is access to water. Unfortunately, too many still do not have access to drinking water in everyday life. If you hear the very interesting interview with the founder of Charity Water, you will understand exactly what this company is all about.
Giving is such a great feeling and helps us make difference in the world. The challenge though is giving to organisations that will be as efficient as possible with those funds. I think that the clarity and transparency that they use is remarkable and should be an example for almost any charity out there. They give us access to see the difference that we’re making, while still guaranteeing that 100% of our donation goes towards the cause. I don’t know of any other type of charity that can say as much. Being in the web space, I also truly appreciate how innovative and viral they have been able to become, how they’ve spread word of mouth. Chances are that you’ve already seen a mention of this charity somewhere on the web, almost all of it is free. I’m not sure why more charities have been able to use the web, despite it being proven such a powerful pool for business, politics and more.
IntelligentSpeculator and Our company will be giving this year
Every year, my partner and I have been able to donate money to our favorite charities on behalf of our company. That is truly a blessing and as the company gets bigger, we are confident that the amount we can give away will also grow bigger. This year, I will be splitting my part of the donation between one children’s hospital and Charity Water. It’s the most deserving charity that I’ve seen in a long time. I also though it would make sense to write about it, try to get others involved. If I can get just a few more of you interested In the project, I’d be so thrilled.
