Aloha meme

Aloha Friday question (thanks to An Island Life for the idea)

If you had a bajillion dollars, who would you help first?

To answer my own question, I would pay so everyone in the world had clean water.

Aloha!

I think I would help those who are still affected by Hurricane Katrina. I think it's a tragedy that the government didn't take better care of them.

Thank you for playing along!

I would help the areas of the world most affected by war and try to find (or make) homes for all of the refugees.

I would help alleviate the poverty in our country. I'll make sure everyone can have a decent meal at least 3x a day.

I'd wipe out everyone's debt. All credit cards, home loans, auto loans, etc., all personal debt. I wouldn't just give money to people because they'd just buy pizza and get their hair highlighted. But I'd help everyone start fresh financially. Then I'd buy pizza and get my hair highlighted.

I would donate it to the inner city school districts around here, for better buildings, materials and education.

I'd donate money to Children's hospitals to help find cures for cancers and diabetes.

I would use it to give loans to people starting up their own businesses around the world, particularly single mothers. (like Kiva, but with a bajillion dollars, it would be on a massive scale). Then I would set up a program for families in third world countries so those who couldn´t breastfeed would be able to give formula to their babies instead of water and oatmeal.

A bajillion dollars. I like that figure! There are so many people in the world that desperately need help however, I think I would start right here in the grand USA. I would establish wholesome safe places of activity where adolescents would want to spend their spare time.

I'd make sure everyone had a decent home to live in, and that there was an abundance of clothes and food for them.
