Simple Charity

There's a very interesting article over on the Harvard Business Review by someone named Jacquelline Fuller. She seems to be associated with a philanthropic organization called Google Giving which gives out Global Impact Awards. Fuller assumes you know her background, and Google doesn't give any clues as to who works for Google Giving, so I had to reread it a couple of times to gain confidence I knew who she was. Anyway, interesting thought - there's an organization called GiveDirectly that just gives micropayments to people in third world countries and sees what happens to their lives. Turns out, it's good! Such a surprise.
