Want to know how RICH you are in the world? Check out this site, it'll make you feel very grateful! I am in the top 5.4% richest in the world, on my measly state salary! I really like the cause behind the site. This site was built to challenge people's perception of their personal wealth. And while doing so, raising money for good causes. This list gives us all a good sense of just how good we have it and reminds us how a little bit can make a big difference to others. Those of us viewing this page are, in fact, part of the privileged minority!
I wanted to share this website, because I like the idea and feel that people are often too stingy with their money, including myself. We constantly think of more things we "NEED", when in all reality, we can live just fine without some of these things and donate a few dollars (or more) to noteworthy causes. This website is currently supporting one of my favorite organizations, who I support as often as possible. Go and feel rich and DONATE, please!
I am the 324,540,230 richest person in the world and in the TOP 5.4%.
|RICHER THAN YOU THINK? |
How do you feel about that? A bit richer we hope. Richer and ready to give some of your newly found wealth to those who need it most. It not hard - just slip your hand in your pocket and pull out something special. Something that can help redress the balance - and also make you feel uncommonly good. Many peoples lives could be happier if you donated just one hour's salary (approx $17.62 - UK estimate).
All you have to do is make a choice.
$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.
$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.
$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.
$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.
