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

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.

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.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. 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.
