If I'm 100 years old, it will be 2087…the world will have many changes, the information age will be in more advanced stage, the consequences of climate change will be more evident and so on.

I think, the girls and women empowered by my favorite Global Giving Project "Provide Scholarships for 20 Rural Guatemalan Women" would have an education and a job, so that they can provide financial security for their family. Their children would have the opportunity to go to a school too. The project itself would get bigger and global, because it would be also supported by the past Kateri Education Fund recipients.

I think the idea of Prema Salgaonkar will make the biggest change in how we use money in the future. It is really a creative solution for poor people to save money, because normally they are living on $2 day or less and saving money is almost impossible.

I would arrange an event in the larger cities over the world with so many celebrities and important personalities as possible in order to call attention and advertise this event. The event should include concerts, something to drink and to eat, whereas the people should pay for food and drink.
