Keeping it Short
Time vs Money

Are You on the Rich List?

Rich_list_2 I've been busy on another project, but was interested to find this effective little piece of marketing through Seth's blog. Created by London-based "creative company," Poke, it was designed  to help people get a little perspective on their wealth and to support Care International.

Just click through, put in your annual income and then get your "rich list" rank. Then, it's all about choice:

"Many peoples lives could be happier if you donated just one hour's salary (approx $34.72 - UK estimate).

All you have to do is make a choice.

$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village."

Cool on a lot of levels.
