Making The World A Better Place

Santorini Dave is an official partner of Give Directly.
Santorini Dave is an official partner of GiveDirectly. For every stayed hotel booking made through my site, I donate $5 to that wonderful charity. GiveDirectly makes cash transfers directly to people living in extreme poverty (usually in Kenya and Uganda).

Total I’ve donated to GiveDirectly: $531,625 (since 2019)

Here’s more info about my donations.

I’m hoping Santorini Dave will continue to grow and my contribution to a great cause will be able to increase.
