There is a website that predicts how rich you are based on net earnings and the number of family members in your household. Based on this tool, I am among the world’s 33% richest and my income is twice the global average. If I gave only 10% of my net income to charity, this could help in the distribution of close to 100 insecticide treated mosquito nets, close to 400 schistosomiasis treatments and save five years of healthy life. If this is how it feels to be in the top 33%, I am deeply worried for those in the bottom 33%, and I mean it.
How rich are you?
Come on, you are richer than you think and the good thing is, giving the 10% or whatever percentage you give will not change your fortunes for worse, and in reality, you would still be better off than millions or even billions of the world’s inhabitants. Let us make a difference by helping those in need. Visit https://www.givingwhatwecan.org and find out how rich you are as you prepare to donate and save the world’s neediest.
