Hi, Margarita, It's been five months. I just posted Learn 1. But I'm stuck on how to get credit. I have a website with the same information on it and added the URL of that site, but am not sure what's next. Caring citizens are the solution, Chuck

Excellent, I'm glad to hear you're heading up peace-dot, and that your garden-ambitious. And yes, I took the courses Peace Innovation and Psychology of Facebook with Dr. Fogg in 2008. So it seems we've got a lot in common. It would be fun to chat sometime =)

Thank you for responding to my campaign ‘Did you drink water today?’ I'd look forward to collaborate with you further how if at all, it is possible for you to send the link to as many people as you can to make them aware of the incredible good work that Charity:Water is doing currently.

A link to the video is:

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
