Company-Sponsored Daycare Printer Friendly Version
Most parents aren't looking for the company to pay for the daycare, although I'm sure they wouldn't mind. I think that what most parents are looking for is to have their kids close and feel that they have more control over their children's environment.
The sponsored daycare could be located in a Mall or other nearby building.
There could be a volunteer parents group to help plan and participate in activities.
Opportunities could be provided to eat with the kids.
The employees of the company may be able to provide technical expertise.
Old and used equipment (computers, chairs desks) could be donated by the company.
Supplies could be purchased cheaper using the company's buying power.
I'm sure there are plenty of other people who could expand on this idea.
This option may be more appealing to a company than a company owned and managed daycare?
This is obviously not economical for small businesses.
Reward: Hearing or seeing the idea in practice would be nice.

Local "Society" Fund Printer Friendly Version
I think it would be a fantastic idea for companies to have an optional "local society" fund. I know a lot of companies have a "social" fund in which employees can opt in or opt out. Even something as little as $10 per month can help immensely. For example, if there is a workplace that had even 30 employees contributing to a local society fund, that would come to a total of $3600 per year for causes to the local society fund, which could be helping their local society out in any way, shape or form. Some things I would do are: building homeless shelters, operating another food bank, buying toys and clothing for women and children's shelters, etc. I think it would be a great idea, a little can go a long ways. $10/month to a local society fund among several employees can change a lot of lives.

World News in a Sandpit Printer Friendly Version
Most psychologists would probably agree that grownups don't REALLY exist. As we grow older, we simply pretend that our behavior is more rational than it was when we were still sitting in the sandpit, but in fact, while the sandpit has changed, we really haven't: Most of what so-called grownups do really just comes from the same emotional motivation that they had when they were really, really small.
What I'd like to see is a satirical news show that doesn't collaborate in enhancing the self-importance of public figures, and which doesn't pretend that there is some deeper meaning to their behavior, when so often there isn't. In that show, the daily news would be reenacted by preschool children, and so viewers could more easily understand what's REALLY going on. The likes of Kim Jong-un, Angela Merkel, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Donald Trump and so forth would be portrayed as the (unpopular) kids which they really are deep inside, highlighting in their quest for attention, love and respect.
Reward: A piece of world peace
