How Was Your Summer?
As the final days of warmth draw to a close here in New England, we’d like to take this time to reflect on how far we’ve come since the inception of The Charity Experiment in January of this year. But first—an announcement.
Through the months of June, July, and August, we raised $497.68 for Population Services International, who won our three-month-long campaign with 60% of the total vote. The Charity Experiment will be taking the post-fees amount ($468.39), rounding up, and donating a total of $500 to PSI to continue performing the exemplary work that they do.
As a refresher, PSI “provides life-saving information, products and services to tackle the most pressing health problems, so that people can lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. They make it easier for women and couples to plan the families they desire, have safe pregnancies and deliveries, and protect themselves and their families from malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea, malnutrition, HIV and AIDS, and chronic diseases.”
To date, we've collected 136 donations and raised over $1,200 for some of the most important causes and effective charities in the world. Our average donation amount is $9.43 and 94% of these donations recur monthly.
We have a number of announcements to share with you as we move forward into the fall. As the seasons transition, so, too, does The Charity Experiment into increasingly exciting territory. Stay tuned for our follow-up blog post detailing these developments.
