Toby Ord, founder of Giving What We Can, is coming to Boston! We'll celebrate with a dinner and informal discussion.
Please let me know if you plan to come so I can make enough food! If you have special food needs, please mention that as well. (Vegetarian/vegan is no problem, so don't get all apologetic, folks.)
The dinner is at our house in West Medford, accessible from the 94, 95, and 80 buses. We can provide rides to the Red Line at the end of the evening.
Email for directions: [masked]
Hope to see you there! Feel free to bring friends.
A bit more about Toby from this story:
"I sat down about seven years ago," Ord told NPR's Melissa Block, "and tried to work out how much I personally could help people through my career." He estimated he could donate about 1 million pounds ($1.6 million) over his life and not have to change his standard of living. And that, he calculated, could help save about 60,000 lives if it went to charities doing good work in some of the world's poorest nations and neediest regions.
