Saving Hotel Soaps Printer Friendly Version
What happens to the millions of little hotel soaps that are only used once or twice? They are thrown away. Why isn't there a central collection agency that gathers all of the soaps, recycles them into new soaps or distributes them to people in need? The hotels could donate the soaps to the agency, and therefore get a charitable tax break. If the hotel wanted to buy back new (recycled) soaps imprinted with a logo or something fancy, they could pay extra (also to charity).
Reward: Knowing all the soap is not going to waste.

Adopt a Single Parent Printer Friendly Version
Churches are at a loss of how to help the continuing growing numbers of single parents which are increasing on a daily basis. In order to assist single parents, there needs to be education. A seminar could be conducted which would introduce the concept and explain the many needs a single parent encounters. My idea is to have a men's group and women's or youth groups of every participating church "adopt" single parents for one month. The men's group could provide house repair, car repair, and lawn care. The women's group could provide babysitting, meals, budget counseling, groceries, taxi service to job interviews and doctor's appointments. The groups would pool their money together to assist a financial need. The churches would do an asssessment of the volunteers to see where he or she is most useful according to their skills and talents. There would be a coordinator to schedule the volunteers as the needs arise. It would be good if a large number of churches participated at the same time during the month because the needs are so great. If this concept was enacted, welfare and food stamps would be a memory.
Reward: Send me success stories and testimonies!

New houses to have solar panels by law Printer Friendly Version
The government should pass a law that all new houses must be fitted with solar panels. Costs (typically $3000 or £2000) would be split by the buyer and the house builder. Benefits to the environment would be massive. Imagine whole new housing estates with solar panels on the roofs, net contributors to the country's energy supply.
Reward: Free solar panels
