Make sense

If I have enough time to travel and to spend time commenting my travels on a blog that means that my life is easy enough to not be obsessed with  worries of what will be my next meal or where I will sleep. I am one of the lucky fews and so I owe it to myself to try and make life easier for anyone else.

Which can mean do little things in everyday life and try to contribute to others’ well being even if only a little…Maybe you want to join? On this page you can find my preferred groups (personally tested, you cannot trust just anyone, right?) which I strongly believe make a difference in this world.

And helping is possible even without money, but by giving some energy and time. Carroll Lewis said something like this:

Even if life does not make sense, what stops you from giving it one?

Lend an amount of money to some entrepreneur somewhere in the world. Start at USD 25.– and get the money back from the borrower some time later. But be aware, once you have started you will want to re-lend that amount as it is great to follow what people can do with your money. Or if you do not want to lend money, become a volunteer with Kiva.
