Transcript

  • 1. Almost half of the world over 3,000,000,000 (billion) people live on less than $2.50 a day
  • 2. and... I never did anything about it because...
  • 3. I didn’t know it was that bad
  • 4. I decided to explore the issues I found new causes I believe in at
  • 5. 25,000 of poverty children die every day
  • 6. yet I never saved a life because I didn’t think I could make a difference
  • 7. 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
  • 8. 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
  • 9. I never gave because I’m just one person
  • 10. If everyone does nothing then nothing will change. If Everyone cares Then Everything will change but... That’s not logical.
  • 11. Nearly 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
  • 12. I didn’t help because I couldn’t afford to give
  • 13. Some conceptions need to be destroyed. Slay the Sacred Cow. Think Creatively A little is better than nothing. Everyone can afford to give Something
  • 14. But charities aren’t efficient anyways. Most of the money goes to overhead and salaries.
  • 15. “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
  • 16. 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water
  • 17. yet I’ve been too busy to give
  • 18. 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
  • 19. And I couldn’t find a cause I believed in
  • 20. So I challenged the rules and gave to a friend There are almost 100 projects in he can choose from
  • 21. I changed the way I think. made a donation, gave a gift, and changed the world. You can do the same
  • 22. 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
