Each gift recipient will receives giving dollars and a one-pager on two specific charities. The recipients pick one of the charities to pitch to the group. After the pitches and ensuing discussion the recipients will be allowed to allocate their giving dollars as they see fit. The winning charity with the most allocated dollars will have its donation doubled!
Discussion was good and centered around a few different topics:

The benefits of meta charities vs direct interventions
In the end these were the results:
The winner this year was the Maternal Health Initiative, due in no small part to Madison's excellent presentation. Congratulations MHI!
