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,

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…

Passing on Indigenous Knowledge

In the future, indigenous will refer to the populations of different planets. The wisdom I would like to pass from Earth is to remember the lessons of the past and not to press Earth's culture on other planets but instead to merge them.See More
