Thank you Patrick, Intel Dinar Chronicles is alive! Thank you to all who contribute -- the seed is growing.
All live contributions are like the nutrients, water, and sun that are keeping this seed healthy.
A special thanks to all those beautiful and graceful articles by Yosef, God Is Love, One Who Believes, Veritas, to the now daily consolidator Judy Byington, and the others to numerous to mention. We do have lively discussions and helpful suggestions.
A few thoughts about future financial gifts to charities and non-profits. a) Maybe it would be better to give consistent, monthly, operational donations than to give lump sum amounts. That way we we work with our chosen charities in an ongoing supportive way; b) Maybe it would be better to purchase directly big ticket items they need and gift them to the charities and non-profits directly, therefore we know the money was spent for those items and not diverted. This might require a "purchasing departments" on our sides at some point; and c) Think about "survival" as priority -- what do people need NOW to stay alive? -- water, food, shelter, non-toxic environments, etc. How can we urgently assist them NOW? This applies to the homeless, refugees, and those in shear poverty.
Patrick, I don't know if this is feasible, but since you are in the middle and have the emails of who contributed ideas to the "Guest Posts Regarding Humanitarian Project Ideas" lists, to create a matrix chart of similar motivations -- a way to coordinate those who have similar interests, a way to "organize" the humanitarians. Or, someone can create a long Master List of topics and all of us, the readers, can check the multiple areas of interest we would like to work. Otherwise, we will have disorganized redundancies of donations for the various projects, charities, and non-profits -- some organizations will receive too much and others too little. Maybe someone will want to take on this task? I cannot, since I already have 30 areas of interest, and growing, to work within. We all will need to hire project managers below us, to handle those topics -- we will need to multiply ourselves. As Andrew Carnegie once said, he would rather have the efforts of 100 men, than 100 percent of his own effort.
I have already contributed articles to IDC 15 times, but I keep on forgetting to add my name.
Hope that helps,
