Inspiring! My project this summer is to buy a bin to collect rainwater for my garden. And I'm a September baby, maybe I should do the same and ask people to give to Charity Water.

Hello Rahul,

thank you for posting this video. I just spent the last hour going through the Charity Water site. Its an amazing operation and it goes to show what you can do when you make a commitment to an idea.

What I took from this video and the website was commitment. Some may point out that the founder was a successful businessman with multinational clients and A-lister friends and so naturally he can start something like this.

Well, I say that it does not matter if you have Scott Harrison's connections and experience. To move an idea forward, you need commitment... and that commitment must start inside you, alone without anyone else knowing of it. Connections can make the path easier but without the commitment in your heart to the idea in your head nothing happens.

In the past two weeks I have seen, met and now call friend many people who have that same spark of commitment. Some have full fleshed out mature projects, others just now finding that this realm of social innovation calls out to them in a voice they have longed to hear their entire life. Regardless they all... no, you all have that passion, you all have made that commitment , and you all can prevail in making your idea, your dream for a better world a reality.

Thank you for posting this,

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. 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

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
