Tourists for Charity Printer Friendly Version
On the whole tourists are unfamiliar with the countries they visit, so when they come across an opportunity to donate something physical e.g. pens to a school, they are ill prepared. A voluntary run service/website could be set up containing information from other travellers offering advice/information of what a tourist could donate before he/she goes abroad. The website could be categorised into countries, where people would simply type in and share their information for others to take advantage of. To keep it current, tourists who had used the information whilst on holiday could also enter information informing users of the site that the original charity donation suggestion was still valid. This would prevent tourists going to a destination and discovering that the donation opportunity does not exist anymore.
Sure, there are plenty of websites out there who offer a service for travellers to provide feedback on the places they have visited or stayed at. Only very rarely is a brief mention made of a donating opportunity on their travels and only then as a cursory mention. None that I have seen have a dedicated area of their website devoted to such a topic of donating to charity in a particular country. Either these websites could set up an area on their webpages or a dedicated website could be set up for just such a purpose.
This idea is not designed to make money, it's designed to be a service to kind hearted people who have a desire to donate things to charity and make a difference in someone else's life. These donation items would have to be small to be carried to the donation opportunity or they could be bought on a person's travel and handed over to the charity in need.

Trap wind for turbines Printer Friendly Version
I was reading how in certain places if two tall buildings are built close together they trap wind and send it rushing through the passage between them.
My idea is not to build turbines between skyscrapers as is often suggested but to build structures outside cities whose sole purpose is to trap wind and send it rushing through a narrow passage in which there are numerous turbines. The turbines can be built into the structure so only the actual turbine bit sticks out.
Given how much the turbines cost these structures could be built relatively cheaply out of concrete or maybe even plastic or wood on a metal frame.(i'm thinking flat plastic panels)
Unless i am wrong this should increase the output of each turbine dramatically.
Reward: acknowledgement

Smokeless Heat Proof Cigarette Case Printer Friendly Version
Like any smokeless cigarette you need only slip your standard cigar or cigarette inside a tube with screens at both ends and one end you light while the other snaps shut for inhaling and could come with an optional filtration system to further make a "So called" safer smoke!
Reward: Too see second hand smoke gone!
