Welcome to the Insightful Giving Blog!

This post is designed to illuminate one of the easiest ways to inject some reliable consistency into your giving practice - by leveraging the magic of autopay with your monthly donations.
The most straight-forward method is to simply find a noteworthy charity that does some really cost-effective work and "subscribe" to it in the same way you would to a streaming service or an app.
Another option is to perform a "Subscription Audit" on your own financial situation, then redirect the funds from the subs you no longer use to high-impact causes for which seemingly small amounts of money can generate unusually significant gains.
Say, for example, you examine all the current subscriptions attached to your credit card and discover that you have about $50 US dollars worth of ongoing monthly fees for services you either no longer use or have flat-out forgotten about.
With just a few custodial tasks and absolutely zero impact to your current budget, you can immediately redirect this wasted cash to fund the purchase and delivery of 9 long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets every month to parts of the world for which malaria is a scourge.
This seemingly insignificant donation is enough to protect 18 children for up to 6 months.
And with autopay enabled, you'll be able to keep this up consistently, without always having to wait for inspiration to strike before you give, as most of us are wont to do.
