I have just found the ideal present for everyone I know this Christmas... 

A book written by William MacAskill aka someone who definitely 'talks your language' as suggested by one of my trustees who had listened to him on Radio 4 talking about Mark Zuckerberg’s new foundation and his promise to give away the majority of his fortune in his lifetime.

Will is based at the University of Oxford in the Centre for Effective Altruism where he and his colleagues are on a mission to develop effective altruism, a practical, data-driven approach that allows each of us to make a tremendous difference regardless of our resources.

Doing Good Better, offers I believe, several practical ideas for us all to build on the momentum gained by  #GivingTuesday the global day of giving, which took place earlier this week for anyone like myself who was in desperate need of an antidote to all the consumerism and excess of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
