#8 – George Rosenfeld on Effective Giving and Building a Charitable Movement
Play • 1 hr 33 min

George Rosenfeld is the founder of May Week Alternative, an initiative encouraging students to donate a significant amount of money to an effective charity. In our longest episode yet, we discuss:

  • George’s inspiration for starting MWA;
  • What he has learned about growing and sustaining a student-based charity;
  • The psychology of what gets people to join the movement and donate their own money;
  • The myths and misperceptions surrounding what it means to have a positive impact, and the most credible ways to do so. And a lot more besides!

If you’re interested in starting a charitable movement, or in how to use your career or time to do more good, then I hope you’ll find this especially useful. You can read more on this episode's accompanying write-up: hearthisidea.com/episodes/george.
