Ever feel like you are not making enough income to supplement your needs? Do you ever wish you were making more money to improve your lifestyle? Would you consider yourself to be poor? Take some time to check out a new website called the Global Rich List. Enter your yearly income and see where you fall compared to salaries across the globe. The results may be shocking! I thought I wasn’t so well off, only to find out I’m considered within the top 11% of the richest globally. Interesting facts the website gave me:

= 669,642,941
You are the 669,642,941 richest person in the world!
You’re in the TOP 11.16%
richest people in the world!

“How do you feel about that? A bit richer we hope. Richer and ready to give some of your newly found wealth to those who need it most. It not hard – just slip your hand in your pocket and pull out something special. Something that can help redress the balance – and also make you feel uncommonly good. Many peoples lives could be happier if you donated just one hour’s salary (approx $10.68 – UK estimate).

All you have to do is make a choice.

$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.

DID YOU KNOW..? 

Three decades ago, the people in well-to-do countries were 30 times better off than those in countries where the poorest 20 percent of the world’s people live. By 1998, this gap had widened to 82 times.”
