I Would Like to Help Fight Poverty

    Global poverty is a huge problem.

    People can barely afford to feed themselves. If they cannot feed themselves then how can we expect them to be good consumers? According to government data one-third of the second most populace country in the world lives on $1.25/day. That means 400Million people cannot purchase...

    Yes

    Poverty is something that I very much would like to work in regards to fighting against.  It is something that tears away opportunities, access to health, food, shelter, it robs of the basic needs we as human beings have.  Whilst human right documents purport that...

    I hate that people think that

    if I say I did something worth doing, that I must be lying or not be a real person or must be a scammer or something. Are there really so few people in the world who want to change it???

    I Think We All Need to Help...

    I think we all need to help in many diferent ways, I know our missins at church do a lot in Mexico for orphanages down there, I also get my scouts involved in multiple projects for North Texas each year.

    Only If They Earn It...

    I frequently give up what I have for others. What I see more often than not is people taking advantage. They take advantage of me, they refuse to get jobs, they do drugs. In USA most of the people in poverty are just lazy butts who refuse to work hard. Additionally, the...

    Maybe this isn't an experience

    but I am wondering if anyone out there agrees that capitalism is just broken! Competition in markets can be good, particularly when we are talking about luxury items. 2 brands of the same soda? Go for it! Helps drive down the price. But we cannot let people compete for basic...

    What do you say to someone

    who asks for either food or money on the streets? Sometimes I give out money.. Sometimes I don't.. Other times I wonder why I even bother. What do you guys do? Does it depend on your bills? Or how your own day is going? Do you simply say, "Sorry. I got nothing." When you...

    A Noble Ambition

    Speaking as someone who has lived his entire adult life one paycheck ahead of financial catastrophe, I must agree that helping to fight poverty is a noble ambition.  However, I am reminded of the words of the great Reverend Ike who said, "The best way to help poor...

    People Fought For Me When I Was Poor.
