Gifts never fail to leave a smile on my face - who doesn't enjoy feeling spoilt every now and again?

Supporting charities

For the philanthropic: I support the following charities, all of whom do vitally important work. I'd be absolutely thrilled if you were able to make a donation on my behalf to:

Ugly MugsSex Worker Advocacy (and) Resistance MovementBrookThe ECP

I also highly recommend GiveDirectly, who have an approach to philanthropy that uses constant experimentation and analytics to understand the most impactful ways to achieve positive outcomes. They use mobile payment technology to send your donations to extremely poor families in the developing world in the most capital efficient way currently possible. £0.91 of your pound ends up directly in the hands of those who need it.
