World Academy Printer Friendly Version
I want to see an international orphanage/boarding/university established that will take in thousands of poverty-stricken children from around the world and educate and provide for them with the best the world has to offer. Upon graduation from the university, these children will be equipped to return to their native lands and use their skills for the greatest possible good of their peoples.

Reflective Designs Printer Friendly Version
There is reflective material that is added to children's clothing and boots sometimes, etc. I love this and would find it interesting to have an artistic design created from it. You could have something for the living room, or children's room (would be great for the little ones when darkness arives). You could go crazy with themes for this (Egyptian, flowers for girls, fish, religious, whatever your fancy might be).

Cross-Generational Care Printer Friendly Version
I currently live next to a care home for the elderly and the residents don't sound very happy there. One notable exception is when they are around young children. My idea is simple: combine elderly care centers with children's day care centers. Young children haven't yet learned from society that people have to behave in certain ways so 'wacky old people' behaviors don't bother them as much, and maybe they'll grow up to be better people for the immersion.
This is simply a replacement of traditional multi-generational family arrangements, where retired, older generations maintained their value to the family as caregivers while able-bodied folks toiled in the field. Nowadays, we've deemed that being old implies that you have to retire and interact only with your age group while living in care centers. Generally, it seems to me that people don't spend enough time outside their age group anymore; and small children don't have much choice about who they spend time with.
Some of the benefits include: Cross-generational information exchange, fewer staff per person, and greater human contact across generations.
Reward: I hope that when I am too old to care for myself, that I am not isolated from future generations and forced to end my influence in society.
