Paul Simon recently narrated a chapter of philosopher and Bioethics professor Peter Singer’s 10th Anniversary Edition of The Life You Can Save, Singer’s landmark work on reducing extreme poverty. About 15,000 children die every day, mostly from preventable causes and treatable diseases.
On Giving Tuesday, December 3, Singer made the newly-recorded audiobook (with chapters narrated by Kristen Bell, Stephen Fry, Winnie Auma, Shabana Azmi and others) available for free download. You can download the audio or e-book The Life You Can Save for free here, and learn how we can all do our part to help eliminate extreme poverty: https://bit.ly/37q1fjP. All downloads through December 2019 will be matched with a $1 donation up to US$50,000 by an anonymous donor.
This week Paul also sat down with Peter Singer and the CBS This Morning Podcast to discuss ‘The Life You Can Save’ through the idea of effective giving. They define effective giving and share the causes that they are passionate about.
