Take 2 Minutes to calculate your carbon footprint
Type: Offer something
What we'll do
Solving climate change requires reducing carbon emissions. When you offset your footprint, you neutralize your emissions by protecting forests that absorb carbon from the atmosphere.
It’s easy to determine your carbon footprint, and how it compares to others.

Shared literacy and learning
Type: Ask for help
What we'll do
Everyone working together for real literacy and true learning. Let’s shine a light over this land! Our main goal is to create an atmosphere of love around learning. All those who have something to teach, all those who have a little extra in the way of paper and pencil, reading materials, art supplies, etc, can contribute. All those who have learning to offer – who wish to learn in order to create a better world (not just for themselves or their own family) – who have a vision of a world of concern for the (inner life). Most of all, all those who seek deep understanding and want to join together to develop it…
 
 
Details
This is not skills learning, or learning to get a job. That is fine, but it is an incremental step toward overcoming the systemic disadvantages in which we find ourselves. It is part of the system that got us in this mess to begin with. Some people get things – education, knowledge, skills, capital, jobs, and others fall by the wayside.
How does it work? …

Be my friend in Cite Soleil!
Type: Ask for support
What we'll do
I’ve had a hard life here in the slum of Cite Soleil, but for the most part I can take care of myself. What I want is a friend — someone who cares about my real situation and wants to learn and exchange letters and videos! I could also use some help in some other areas – Look at the other Invitations on my profile page for that.

Install a water purification system in Cite Soleil
Type: Ask for help
What we'll do
The neighborhood of Fequier in Cite Soleil has poor access to safe water. We would like to install a bio-sand filter provided by the organization Clean Water for Haiti.
 
 
Details
The 100 inhabitants of Fequier have to walk a mile to get water from a private company and then typically carries it back in containers on their heads. They must pay about 5 cents for each bucket.
 
FUNDS NEEDED
Amount to be raised: $300
