I recently was told about this website and after going to the site I have been greatly convicted of the affluent lifestyle that I, a student making less than $3,000 a year, have been supporting. With my stated annual income I am ranked in the TOP 14.82% richest people in the world! Visit this site for yourself and see just how rich you really are! Is that next latte really worth the four bucks we are willing to fork over for it?

All you have to do is make a choice.

$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.
