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,

Namaste

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…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.
