"Dan Colman and I organized a very successful charity drive, so I wanted to do it again, this time on a larger scale. Between now and the end of the year, I am matching charity donations up to $175,000.", Smith explains.

This year Smith will match donations made to: The Against Malaria Foundation, Give Directly, Massachusetts Bail Fund, Just City, Liberation Prison Yoga, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), Zendo Project, Open Philanthropy and 350.org.
