You are here
to enable the world
to live more amply,
with greater vision,
and with a finer spirit
of hope and achievement.
You are here to enrich the world.
-Woodrow Wilson, submitted by Casey B.
On Saturday, I spent the day with a few hundred students from several Indiana universities who mentor other college students. Even though TIME is a most valuable and scarce commodity for students, they spend some of it helping others. They inspired me.
On the flight home, I was reading the latest issue of Newsweek which focused on “Global Giving” and mentioned an extremely successful fund raising effort to prevent Malaria in Africa. $10 buys a mosquito net, and gets it delivered and explained to a family in Africa. Ten bucks saves a life. That inspired me, too.
Take a deep breath, and read on.
I want The Ripples Project to buy 1,000 nets
and I will pay half.
If I can convince 1,000 people,
6% of our 16,000+ subscribers
to donate FIVE BUCKS,
I will match that so
$5 actually buys a $10 net.
Are you in?
Learn the details here:
One month: 10,000 nets.
Let’s ENRICH THE WORLD!
P.S. The UN Foundation is coordinating, every nickel goes to Africa, and I’ll post updates every week in October. Please take action!
