I’ve always looked towards the future, which has allowed me to see coming trends in society and disruptive technologies years before most. This foresight led to my first investment in Bitcoin in 2013. I’ve followed the development of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology closely ever since, and currently offer a “Crypto 101” class to help bring new people up to speed on the technology, the opportunities, and the scams to stay away from.
Charity: Water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Founded by Scott Harrison, Charity: Water has single-handedly revolutionized the non-profit industry, with their policy of deploying 100% of donated funds (including merchant processing fees) into the field with complete, verifiable transparency.
To date, Charity: Water has completed 35,281 water projects in 27 countries, providing 10 million people with sustainable, clean water for the very first time in these communities.
Charity: Water is able to deploy 100% of donated funds into the field because their overhead and administration costs are covered by a small group of approximately 150 families known as “The Well”, who make substantial donations to the organization.
I had the honor of becoming a member of The Well in 2017, alongside Tony Hawk, Gary Vaynerchuk, Chris Sacca, and Simon Sinek.
You can learn more about the Charity: Water story in my interview with Scott Harrison here.
