It's been awhile since we posted on the EA forum, and we have some big updates about our projects. Here is a short summary with links to more detailed explanations.

 

Charity Science Health

  • Four months ago, Charity Science Health launched, aiming to use SMS reminders to increase vaccination rates in India. This intervention is backed up by significant evidence and was the strongest global poverty intervention we identified after six months of prioritization research.

  • Things have been progressing well, and we have published our first update.  

  • We fully funded our initial budget, with a $200,000 grant from GiveWell Experimental and $50,000 from the EA community.

  • We have recently been invited to the second stage interview at Y Combinator.

 

Charity Science Outreach (our classic Charity Science outreach and fundraising work)

  • We scaled down Charity Science Outreach. We don’t currently plan on doing any future experiments, but we will continue to make sure our two most successful fundraising activities keep happening (legacies and peer-to-peer fundraising).

  • .impact will be taking over the management of our Christmas fundraisers. Given their network of chapters we feel they will be able to run this program in an effective way this year and in the future.

 
We are also actively seeking volunteers, particularly for Charity Science Health research and legacy promotion. We’ve found that our plans can be significantly sped up through volunteer assistance and we’re looking for as much help as possible. We have large amounts of high value research our team will not have the capacity to do without the help of EAs. Sign up to volunteer here.

Congratulations! I'm excited to see where this goes!

We are standard hackers. We just succeeded with a new invention. We've got hacked ATM cards for sale. These hacked ATM cards have been programmed to work on any ATM machine. The cards have been topped up with $100,000 With a daily withdrawal of $3000 per day ( depending on how it is programmed ). The cards have got some special features which includes; *Deactivating the cctv cameras when inserted in the ATM machine,

  • It comes with a 4 digit pin just like every other ATM card,
  • It can be topped up when the money in it has been exhausted, It is untraceable and undetected. The cards were successfully programmed with the hard-work of our hackers. And they are cloned using a writer (MSR 606). If you need to get the cards, order one today and it will be shipped to your location. Contact us on: "STANDARDHACKERS@GMAIL.COM" **Serious buyers only**

Ah, but have you done a RCT with a cost effectiveness analysis on this? I am dubious that hacked ATM cards are a more cost efficient intervention than, say, funding free bed bet distribution!
