Hi, this is Peter Singer, welcoming you to The Life You Save, the blog that accompanies the new website, www.thelifeyoucansave.com.
Yesterday was publication day for my new book, The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty. OK, only in Australia, so far. The next edition to appear will be the US and Canadian edition, due out on March 3rd. That will be followed by the UK and then the Swedish editions, in March/April.
And yesterday, we launched the website, so if you haven't seen it yet, go there now. (It's all due to an incredible volunteer who, at least for the moment, wishes to remain anonymous.) Amazingly, we already have more than 40 people who have pledged to meet the standard for giving suggested in the book. Presumably most of them haven't read the book yet, but heard about it - I was busy doing radio and tv interviews all yesterday - and found enough information on the website to know that this was something they wanted to do - or were already doing.
I hope this blog will be a place where you will want to post your thoughts, and exchange ideas with others about both the book and the website. The rest is up to you.
