About The Life You Can Save

The Life You Can Save was founded in 2013 by philosopher Peter Singer and former executive Charlie Bresler.
The organization was born out of Charlie Bresler's personal quest for impact, inspired by Peter Singer’s book The Life You Can Save. Charlie, a psychologist and business executive, reached out to Peter, and together they formed an organization dedicated to spreading Peter’s ideas and encouraging effective philanthropy.
Over the past decade, their collaboration has inspired global change, resulting in over $100 million in donations to high-impact charities.
