In 2009, Peter Singer wrote the first edition of The Life You Can Save to demonstrate why we should care about and help those living in global extreme poverty, and how easy it is to improve and even save lives by giving effectively. Peter then founded a nonprofit organisation of the same name, The Life You Can Save, to advance the ideas in the book. Together, the book and organisation have helped raise millions of dollars for effective charities, supporting work protecting people from diseases, restoring sight, avoiding unwanted pregnancies, ensuring that children get the nutrients they need, and providing opportunities to not only survive but thrive.
In 2005, Peter was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2009 The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age included him among the most influential Australians of the past half century. He is a Companion in the Order of Australia for his communication of ideas regarding animal welfare, global poverty and the human condition.
“A persuasive and inspiring work that will change the way you think about philanthropy...and that shows us we can make a profound difference in the lives of the world’s poorest.” —Bill and Melinda Gates
