After reading your post I listened to my own internal guidance, and decided to make this second post I've ever made here on this website to share my perspective.
There is a massive difference between constructive criticism and sharing opinions that are not helpful (i.e. not constructive towards achieving successful goals).
I inner and understood what you are saying, and to me that post was constructive criticism. I absolutely love and appreciate constructive criticism. I even value it more than a bunch of "yes people" that have no sincere reasoning as to why they made the decision to say yes.
Again, I can only speak for myself and be an example and share my perspective.
It really isn't that difficult. For example this idea just literally popped up in my brain. Just open up a franchise, like the bizarre-o version of "Title Max" or some other alleged "loan" franchise you've seen around.
Except, it's a non-profit gift distributing franchise, open to anyone who walks in.
People go in ask for an amount they need, the person at the counter gives them a check, and out of respect for their individual belief system keep the terms and conditions simple.
For example let them know that the only terms and conditions in exchange is to help yourself, help others, and love and mutually respect yourself, others, and the environment.
I say help yourself first because it's the ol' airplane oxygen mask analogy, you cannot help others until you are in a state of being to effectively, competently, and successfully help others.
It's that simple. People come to your creation (their reason in doing so can be explained briefly or not), and receive some "shoe straps" so that it's easier for them to take their own personal responsibility to lift themselves up and others. I say "shoes" because not everyone is into boots, and honestly I'm in bare feet 60-95% of my time.
Maybe call the franchise "Ask, and It is Given" or "The Ask and It is Given Center"?
I have other creation ideas that I have a bigger tug towards, so come to think of it, the reason I am sharing this, is to let people know that having and utilizing that many representations of value compared to other consciousnesses (because every being is priceless, whether they know it or not) really isn't that difficult. And again because I have other creation ideas that I have a bigger tug towards first, if someone feels the call to make something similar or every-direction-right use the same idea with the same name please go right ahead, own it, run with it. I am super grateful.
Just like there are many restaurant franchises with a similar format/template, there can be many different giving centers.
It's not that difficult. Also when you are doing a "labor" of love it doesn't even feel that difficult if at all. Again, it's all really quite simple.
With great joy, gratitude, and appreciation, someone who knows this is real, because I listened to my own internal guidance
PS. As far as the cute (cute??? I know you are but what am I?) exercise being stupid perspective goes, Jesus had a wash board stomach :-P
