    Traveling and doing good....

    Its actually dangerous to travel in this era -- Unless you stay in tourist sites. Such as, Cancun, Dubai, Paris, London, Hong Kong.

    Going outside to rural areas... You could easily find inhospitable locals.

      I really hate how rich people give money to third world countries. You can call that however you like. The fact is, USA is very poor and with companies like Microsoft and HP constantly putting factories over there -- Hurts the USA economy. Those companies who do that -- Have not one humanitarian practice, but only too have cheap labor.

      As that is sort-of irrelevant... Third-world countries are kept poor and will only have tourist sites, while the rest of their country suffers. The dictators of the country never is without power, like in most third-world nations. The dictators of those countries have the latest tech... All while, the poor in Iraq and in some parts of Africa live in HUTS -- Made from dirt and sticks.

      From the aspect it looks horrible... But those countries still have their means to draw attention. Most recently Africa... They have ALL the kids pile up and make little stories of being poor and attempt to obtain money. Its a scheme, the third world country put on to get pitty givers to give them money. Thats why you will see hordes of children, with one or two adults...

      Government agencies -- ALL the time, tell these pitty givers(rich people). Watch your investment and you have Bill Gates observaing the facilities... All he probably wonder is -- Where did my money just go? Well its simple, if you go to the high-collar areas... You would find where the money is actually being funded. Pitty giver also could be funding malicious/ terrorist events. So if you want to "Do good, traveling and helping" . You build a facility for the poor. Giving them money is taking a massive chance on them blowing it on things that they do not need. You can actually live well, with just 100 dollars in most very poor countries, Luxurious well.

      So, if you wanna give poor person money, hook me up... You should also do more practical things as in... Give money TO YOUR own country. Create beneficial organizations... Writer guilds... Software writer guilds... Etc.

      If not, just give me money. I've always wanted to have my very own All-you-can-Eat Chinese & Mexican food buffet; I'd call it "¿The Authentic? 自助餐" . It would work, both style of food require large amounts of rice and fried foods.
