Does the world's reaction to the SDGs frustrate you too?
I've been told that it appears that I've become frustrated with my project
and that I seem very depressed because no one cares.
I want to say to you today that it's true, but it motivates me to try even harder.
My ideas are sound, my project is alive and I'm ready and raring to go.
The frustration you sense is with mankind! Why do so few care?
Man's inhumanity to man is eating at me and I feel helpless and misunderstood.
I realized from the beginning that I'd have problems reaching adults,
I've said all along that our children are our future and it's them who must be the change.
I also know that every day someone new reads my page and that sooner or later I'll reach THE one.
I know I'll find that someone who understands and cares, who takes my idea and makes it bloom.
It may not be today, it may not be this year or within my lifetime, but it will happen.
I only need to find the one person with the words I can't find.
How do I know my idea will work? What makes me so sure?
While making a garden with school kids I explain the world situation and the SDGs.
Reflected back at me is the disgust that although we live like kings, other kids are starving.
What is $1.00 per month? $12.00 per year to you is peanuts, yet it would change the world.
Are you telling me you can't spare 1 hour per week of your time?
Is it asking too much to make a simple sacrifice to try something new?
Begin today, be the change and spread the word, like and share your work with others.
If I could reach 1,000,000 people each freely giving just $1.00 per month to the WFP,
they could feed a lot of starving children and still have money for other pressing things,
Imagine now if those million would also freely give 1 hour per week to help kids search for answers,
I know how smart our kids are, they hold the solutions within their little heads.
They will need adults to help them solve tough problems and guide them when they need it.
I dream that we could have reached enough human beings to be able to fund the change.
The clubs January 2020 deadline gives kids time to work, while hopefully building a funding base.
Ouf intention is to use the monthly donations to find ways to empower the poor where they live.
I ask for nothing for myself, it's all about solving the problems addressed by the SDGs.
I believe the Global Goals club is a good solution, because there is no pressure, no fees,
no outside allegiances, only the straightforward search for answers.
I beg our school systems to take up the gauntlet and encourage our kids to begin the search.
I implore teachers to steer our youth in a direction which coincides with the 17 SDGs.
I encourage parents to encourage their children, to guide them and live by those precepts.
The search has nothing to do with religion, politics, race, color or any other dividing practice.
Join me and don't be quiet about it. The poor starving people of the world deserve it.
The Global Goals club welcomes all, no exceptions!
