I'm also a forum mod, which, shamelessly stealing from Lorenzo, "mostly means that I care about this forum and about you! So let me know if there's anything I can do to help."

Anonymous feedback here:


I think that if you want to make allegations and point noses into a certain direction, it is really important to make your point clear and argue in good faith. This post fails both boxes in my book.

Hi Ulrik,
I think I understand what you mean. :)

In Germany, we have a diversity group with meetings every two weeks, but I think it is limited to folks living in the region. If you are interested in joining, I'll ask them.

If they are happening elsewhere too, why is it unique to EA?

Hey, really nice website. :)

Hi Adebayo,

impressive participation list. Welcome to the forum, nice to have you here. :)

What books are you currently reading in your reading group? Maybe you have some recommendations.

Hi Angela,

welcome to the forum. :)

I think it is really nice that you want to improve the world and do something good, like helping those which are forgotten by the system. But I see some problems with your fundraising.

If I wanted to support your cause, I would need to trust you that you are capable to achieve the goals you set. So far you are presenting the idea and state that you don't have social network to promote it too. Who are you and why can you achieve your goal?

There is also the challenge that you have to convince me, that your NGO is more efficient in improving the lives of your participants than a charity evaluated by GiveWell. How would the life of your partitioners change with your program? Is there a roadmap or a theory of change?

In short, you want to give prisoners and ex-felons the opportunity to work in your catering, for them to get a foot on the ground after they're released. Why is your program better than others, can you give us more evidence?

With kind regards


Hey there. :)

Nice to see some other forestry people here. 🌳🌲

Do you have a favourite sustainability framework? I like the triple bottom line to introduce pupils into thinking about how to integrate different demands in an ecosystem. Maybe you have another one that you can recommend. :)

I don't know this half-marathon in London, so I try to give a picture for everyone else. 

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a closed road, central London run and raised over £37.5 million for charity since its start in 2018.
They have 367 different charities listed for which you can run for, with those ten in a prominent place, see all here:

"Each charity place costs: £142.50
Charities must purchase a minimum of 5 places. 
Places are non-refundable, and cannot be rolled over or transferred."

If you want to buy less, then each cost £152.50.

I was not able to get numbers on how much money this was able to raise for the charities in comparison with the time and money you have to spend for the event.

I doubt it's the best event to spend resources on, but maybe I am mistaken and high impact orgs recommended by Give Well can implement something like this in their fundraising.

Thank you for bringing something up that's important for you. Maybe add more explanation, so that others have a better understanding about why the llhm would be a good opportunity for fundraising compared to the other alternatives.
