Introducing Direct Relief Connect, a new podcast by Direct Relief. The show brings together highly skilled philanthropists and members of Direct Relief’s staff to provide an in-depth look at the organization’s work, as well as give a glimpse into guests’ personal journeys and how they came to support causes they are passionate about.

For the first episode, Jitsu, a gaming content creator who focuses on Monster Hunter and horror games, and Annie Vu, Direct Relief’s Manager of Program Operations speak with Amarica Rafanelli about live streaming antics, digital fundraising, unusual donation incentives (such as getting a tattoo for charity), and Annie’s donation-funded work, which includes responding to emergencies and managing requests for medical aid.
