We would like to formally invite you to join us, and the leaders of San Francisco's technology community, on Thursday, May 23rd for an evening of good wine and conversation with the founders of GiveDirectly, a non-profit organization we enthusiastically support.   GiveDirectly is founded on a radically simple, but often overlooked idea: the poor need money.  Using the newest cell phone technology, GiveDirectly provides unconditional cash transfers to the poorest of the poor in East Africa to empower them to escape the cycle of poverty.  This is groundbreaking work that has the potential to transform the world of international development and represents a fundamental shift in the giving mindset.

To RSVP for this exclusive event, please simply email your name to sobrien@generalcatalyst.com.
