    Thanks for sharing. I may include this in Push for Good, our series on crowdsourcing culturally creative impact.



        oh man! I honestly didn’t think it would be so tough! They are all really great efforts in their own manner, and from what I have read every initiative has passionate people behind it which to me is what’s most valuable (lets hope they’re all brought to fruition :). Picking one over the other (as I thought of each) kind of made me feel bad because I was condemning one not worthy and they all are! But in the end I picked the one I believe could invest the money the best, and could evolve into something innovative and more permanent that can be implemented everywhere, not just in the target area. I hope I don’t sway any perspectives, but I voted for Riders for Health since I think the idea, is the start to evolving a great concept of giving soon-to-be doctors the availability to not only learn, but to also travel to people who can’t access a hospital or health center in impoverished areas. Coursera, and Copenhagen were runner ups, but I think they have a lot more resources and accessibility, than Riders for Health.
        What about you?

        P.S Sounds good :)
        I’m curious to see what people think about it. Let me know if you need help!
