Am I Really Rich?

How rich are you? >>

I'm loaded.
It's official.
I'm the 53,205,017 richest person on earth!


$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.

Think about what is really important this Christmas!

Jenn - I totally should have called when I was in Billings! All the crazy drivers and mall people sort of freaked me out. I wasn't really thinking clearly. And I was supposed to meet up with a friend there, but she ended up in the ER that afternoon with a kidney stone! So... next time I will take you up on that offer. ;)
