  • I feel I did make a difference in the world I live in during my years in the Peace Corps. I helped quite a few people and received the extra benefit of learning a lot as well.

  • If I had unlimited funds. I would turn old houses or apt building into nicer buildings. Then help those who are homeless find a safe place to live. Help them find jobs by working with others like themselves. Teaching them a trade and making a difference in the world. Giving everyone a second, third or fourth chance. To love on them, to give them medical attention and to make sure they are safe. I just wish I had unlimited funds like that.

  • I would make an organization that actually helps women who decide to keep their babies and not go thru with an abortion. Many pro-life organizations urge women to keep their babies but don't help them out afteward! I am pro-life and I want to help them out too for as long as they need.

  • I would love to provide scholarships . . both to college-bound kids and to those interested in learning a specific trade instead of college. It is really hard for kids, these days, to get started in the world, and I would love to help.

    I also want to raise money to build hospitals and train doctors in countries such as Afghanistan, where maternal and infant mortality is ridiculously high.
