OK, I have an ethical reason to hook you like this in my headline, so read on, and I'll explain what I mean by 1 in 6 too.
1 in 6! Scandalous... and NOBODY KNOWS about this!
If you ever thought about making a difference in the world, I came across a project that allows you to help 1 person for 1 year for 1 dollar. Next time you skip a 15 dollar drink at the club, you can help somebody in miserable conditions to live with dignity for 15 years instead, PLUS the 15 bucks will throw off another 90 bucks in revenue that person will then be able to create.
What the hell are you talking about Karea?
As it turns out, one in six people in the world don't have clean drinking water. Their water is muddy, polluted, infected, or all of the above. Eben Pagan is sponsoring a charity in Africa that builds wells and it's one of the best projects I've come across. With a 5000 dollar donation you can build a well for an entire town, 20 dollars sustain another person for 20 years. The best part is that the organisation funds itself through OTHER channels, so every single dollar donated to the project goes STRAIGHT to the people in need... none gets sunk in the organisation.

If you're into self help, like just about everybody in the community, you've probably heard the advice to save and invest 10% of your income, and to donate another 10% of your income. Some people like to start with 1% or 5%, depending on their financial conditions, but if you're at all interested in helping other people out, this is probably one of the highest impact charities you'll find.
Very easy to donate too... just by clicking a paypal link, or typing up your credit card details. And it's tax deductible too.
As Tony Robbins says, when would now be a good time?
My best to you all,
