Three Strikes

How much worse can it get?

I found it hard to believe that  flight MH370 can still be missing.  After all we live in a world that is globalised with so much technology at our fingertips.

Then when flight MH17 was shot out of the sky I found myself horrified.  Horrified that such violence could take so many innocent lives.

However after watching television on Sunday when Laura Bushney told her story of being sexually assaulted by the head steward on flight MH20 I was gob smacked.   

I guess this is why Malaysia Airline flights currently look like this ....


Malaysia Airline have put up the percentage of their cut to travel agents from 6% to 11% for them to sell their seats.  

Apparently according to current media reports they have enough money to keep them in the air until November.  

That is 3 months away.   

Will that be enough time for people to forget.

Would you fly with Malaysia airlines?

Would you lend $25 to your friend for .... say 12 months?   Even if you knew there was a chance she may forget about it and not pay you back?

Would you lend $25 to a complete stranger for .... say 24 months if you knew you would get paid back at a just over a $1 per month?

This is just what I have done for the 120th time.   Lent money to a complete stranger.

This is Lynnie and she is from the Philippines   She is desperately trying to finish her catering degree but pennies have been short.  She needs to finish school as soon as possible because her family is going to be depending on her income next year to send her younger sibling to school.So she applied for a loan that is interest free through KIVA.

KIVA which is an amazing online charity banking service run by volunteers world wide I get to feel good about helping a young girl get ahead in life.

Over the past two years I have been selling secondhand books on ebay as a method to raise funds to add to my KIVA account.   These funds every week get to help another person with a foot up in life.

What is that saying ....  give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats everyday.

I often imagine what the world would be like if every person (who could afford to do so) donated a $1 a week to help someone else out in the world.

Wordless Wednesday

Coffee or Love

On my recent road trip whilst listening to the radio I heard a campaign a coffee shop was running.  Customers were asked to not only purchase a coffee for themselves that morning but also for someone who normally would not be able to afford one.  They were calling it paying it forward with coffee.  

 It was like a wake up call for me.   It has been awhile since I have made an effort to pay it forward personally. I do help others financially often with KIVA which is online. 

I still haven't had an opportunity in the last week to pay it forward in person.  However I am looking for the opportunity.

Have you done something for someone else and paid it forward recently?
