What is your primary interest in joining this group?

I am looking for others who are also interested or involved in trying to make the world a better place for the majority of mankind (and are able and willing to think big). I hope to be able to exchange ideas, and help to contribute to the success of as many effective initiatives as possible. I hope to be inspired by others to think and act bigger and to inspire others to think and act bigger.

Tell us about your social enterprise, nonprofit organization or whatever it is that inspires you:

I am working to implement a number of projects all based on mobilizing masses in a pull-approach to helping. This includes motivating students (and those who should be students) to take charge of their own education (whether in a troubled school in the US or children not in school in an orphanage or refugee camp somewhere). It also includes motivating and assisting people anywhere in the world to take charge of their own lives (including building their own economic opportunities where none exist). Essentially, this initiative is focused on building sustainable economies in countries where they currently do not exist. I have done some preliminary testing and have conceived and implemented several projects that attracted around a quarter of a million participants in hundreds of communities across the US.

Introduction

Recently retired & would like help leave my children/grandchildr­en a better world (less hunger/poverty/disea­se, less war & violence, better universal education, more economic/quality of life opportunity, etc.). Initial test projs involved > 250,000.
