We have hit the pause button and are taking time out to reflect on the way ahead for Give Aid Direct.

We always said that we didn't want create another small charity, no matter how worthy, operating at the margins. The goal of Give Aid Direct was to have a fundamental impact on giving. And so far we haven't been able to do that. So now we feel that it's time to pause and reflect. Our experience so far has been tremendously valuable and has given us a much better handle on what it will take to succeed. In truth, we may open our doors again but we may not.

So, a big thank you to all of you who believe in the idea and have supported us so far. We'll update you when we decide what to do next.
