This morning I stumbled upon a very interesting website called: http://www.globalrichlist.com/.
The site calculates your rank in the world's 'rich-list'. Suffice to say that we are incredibly more wealthy than we realise when compared to the rest of the world.
More from the site:
- $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.
