Jeremy, a teacher, recently emailed us because he was interested in supporting charities that work on the problem of obstetric fistula. Fistula is a cause that I’ve written about before and is one that, emotionally, is extremely compelling.
I thought the email exchange with Jeremy was informative, so (with his permission) we’ve posted it here.
In brief, I think it provides:
- A reasonable template for a donor thinking about supporting an organization that provides surgical care
- An example of how a donor can care deeply about a specific cause and have an initial feeling about the best organization to give to but then benefit from thinking critically about his or her giving decision.
