About 3 years ago I pledged to give 2.5% of my income to effective charities. Later, I began increasing the percentage by 0.2% every month, and it as now at 6%.
I was reminded recently in an email to renew my pledge, so here goes.
I pledge that over the coming year I will give 6% of my (after-tax) income to organizations effectively helping people living in extreme poverty.
“After-tax” because donations aren’t tax deductible in Sweden. I will keep adding 0.2% every month for another while, but haven’t decided for how long.
