There are two reasons people don’t do things:
- No motivation (i.e. “I don’t want to”)
- No ability (i.e. “I don’t know how to”)
There are no exceptions to this rule. If someone has both the motivation and the ability to do something, they will do it.
The following graph demonstrates that there is a spectrum. Low motivation but high ability or high motivation but low ability will still lead to action. And everything in between.
When you ask people why they don’t help the poor, it’s always:
- “I don’t believe my money is used effectively” (i.e. No motivation).
- “I don’t know how to give to the poor effectively” (i.e. No ability).
Today, for the first time ever, there is a valid answer to both of these legitimate complaints.
DonorSee has launched a new feature called “Monthly Gifts.” Not only does DonorSee show you how effective your money is being used with picture and video updates, but now it automates the entire process for you. Sign up once, DonorSee picks the most important projects, and the updates come straight to your phone. That’s it.
It takes 30 seconds to sign up. And, without doing anything else, your money is effectively put to work by a global network of aid workers dedicated to alleviating poverty. This is the best thing invented in 2017.
