The Life You Can Save
Leading Humanist philosopher Peter Singer has just published a book which is more than a book, it is an attempt to change the culture of how we view contributing to charities which fight world poverty. The book is accompanied by a campaigning website, forums and blogs at http://www.thelifeyoucansave.com/index.html. The website includes an online calculator to show how much you should be contributing if poverty is to be defeated.
In his Times Online Review Humanist philosopher A.C. Grayling says of Singer: "His book has a thoroughly practical purpose: to persuade people that it is wrong not to give charitably - wrong, note. We all know that it is good to give, but his point is that it is positively wrong not to - and to show by a snowstorm of facts and figures how much we should give if we are to take this obligation seriously." http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/ ... 943875.ece
