Who of my peeps knows Jeff Bezos? He writes, “I’m thinking about a philanthropy strategy that is the opposite of how I mostly spend my time — working on the long-term,” – we like!
Mr. Bezos wrote. “For my philanthropy, I find I’m drawn to the other end of the spectrum: the right now.”
I can not think of anything more immediate than Saving African Kids Lives who are needlessly dying because of a lack of healthcare. Without health the rest means nothing, wrote the Minister of Health for Ethiopia. The fact that 1/8 kids is dying before their 5th birthday, that 2/3rds are from a treatable/preventable ailment, that a shocking 80% won’t have seen a healthcare provider in their entire life…. would make headlines and the calling of a national emergency in the Western world, but when in Africa we simply say ‘It’s the way of the world.’
So please Mr. Bezos give us a call!
