Teaching them to give Printer Friendly Version
Some schools have already started this idea.... but it should be required by many more. Jr High and High School age kids should be required to do a certain number of community service hours per semester to pass. Donating their time to a cause (of their choice) would create more caring and aware citizens.
Reward: A better world.

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!

By Appointment to The Homeless Printer Friendly Version
Ever since I've been a kid, I've been wondering about that "By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen" logo that you can find on so many products of the English-speaking world. Does SHE really need that many products? And above all - why should I care?
I propose introducing an entirely different logo: "By Appointment to The Homeless". Now that's something I might actually be interested in. It indicates that the product is actually given away to those in need (for FREE of course). Of course this would have to be monitored somehow to prevent abuse, but after all, the "By Appointment to Her Majesty" thing is surely monitored as well, so maybe those people can take care of the other logo as well, then they'd be doing something useful for a change.
