Each year I do the majority of my Charity donations in early December (just after my birthday) spread over a few days (so as not to get my credit card suspended). I’m a little late this year due to a new credit card and other stuff distracting me.
I also blog about it to hopefully inspire others. See: 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015
All amounts this year are in $US unless otherwise stated
My main donations was to Givewell (to allocate to projects as they prioritize). Once again I’m happy that Givewell make efficient use of money donated.
- $600 to Givewell
I donated $50 each to groups providing infrastructure and advocacy. Wikipedia only got $NZ 50 since they converted to my local currency and I didn’t notice until afterwards
- $50 to Lets Encrypt
- $50 to EFF
- $50 to The Internet Archive
- $NZ 50 to Wikipedia
Some Software Projects. Software in the Public Interest provides admin support for many Open Source projects. Mozilla does the Firefox Browser and other stuff. Syncthing is an Open Source Project that works like Dropbox
- $100 to Software in the Public Interest general fund
- €40 to Syncthing
- $50 to Mozilla
Finally I’m still listening to Corey Olsen’s Exploring the Lord of the Rings series (3 years in and about 20% of the way though) plus his other material
- $103 to to Signum University
