Here you go! Oh, you mean you wanted the real thing huh? What would you do with the money. Frankly, $100 isn't what it used to be. But on the other hand, there are many people in this world who live off of less than 2 dollars a day according to the World Bank! The World Bank defines extreme poverty as living on less than 1 US dollar per day, and moderate poverty as less than $2 a day, estimating that "in 2001, 1.1 billion people had consumption levels below $1 a day and 2.7 billion lived on less than $2 a day. That's 3.8 billion people living on less than the cost of a Starbucks Latte per day. So in theory, $100 could provide support to someone living in moderate poverty for about 50 days!
So as I acknowledge my 100th post! Hooray! I wanted to do something more than just shout hooray and pat myself on the shoulder. I've decided to make a contribution to a charity. I decided to make it a charity that I rarely support. In this case, I've chosen World Vision I'm not necessarily endorsing this charity over any others. Please do your own research if you choose to make a donation. But ultimately, I do hope my contribution will make a difference. Many of you have already reached and exceeded the 100 mark. My compliments to you. I now know what a commitment it really is to write and post this many times. I've enjoyed it and hope I can continue to the 1000 level!
