    Uend Poverty Uend Poverty Presentation Transcript

    • Almost half of the world over 3,000,000,000 (billion) people live on less than $2.50 a day
    • and... I never did anything about it because...
    • I didn’t know it was that bad
    • I decided to explore the issues I found new causes I believe in at
    • 25,000 of poverty children die every day
    • yet I never saved a life because I didn’t think I could make a difference
    • So I let go of my assumptions If I assume I can’t help then I never will because a 2% diversion of Christmas spending would put $20 billion toward eradicating world poverty
    • Almost $1 trillion per year is spent on holiday gifts. Less than 1% of that could put every child in the world in school yet it never happens
    • I never gave because I’m just one person
    • If everyone does nothing then nothing will change. If Everyone cares Then Everything will change but... That’s not logical.
    • Nearly 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
    • I didn’t help because I couldn’t afford to give
    • Some conceptions need to be destroyed. Slay the Sacred Cow. Think Creatively A little is better than nothing. Everyone can afford to give Something
    • But charities aren’t efficient anyways. Most of the money goes to overhead and salaries.
    • “what concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are”-Epictetus, Philosopher 100% of donations through go directly to the project of choice
    • 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water
    • yet I’ve been too busy to give
    • So I reversed my viewpoint “You can’t see the good ideas in front of you by looking twice as hard at what’s behind you” -Andrew Mercer, Innovator Online gifting at takes less than 5 minutes to complete
    • And I couldn’t find a cause I believed in
    • So I challenged the rules and gave to a friend There are almost 100 projects in he can choose from
    • I changed the way I think. made a donation, gave a gift, and changed the world. You can do the same
    • Our Mission UEnd.org exists to inspire and empower North Americans to refocus a portion of their Christmas spending towards strategic and sustainable projects in the developing world to help them eradicate poverty. visit us online at www.uend.org
