The Global 15%'s

@ VOL 23 ON JUN 13, 2017

Once basic survival needs are met, an enriched wellness of all living beings can follow. This is the world we most desire to see. But half the human population still lives on less than $4 per day, and the bottom 15% subsists on $500 per year. If you're above the poverty line in America, you're among that other 15%, the wealthiest in the world by birth lottery. So, to create the world we desire most, shouldn't we first aspire to meet the basic needs of those most circumstancial trapped, and to do so as effectively as we can?  will explore those issues with you in this presentation.
