Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (7)


Quote of the day:
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?” 
-Martin Luther King Jr.

Elvis Summers built a tiny house on wheels for a homeless woman who had been sleeping on the streets and also launched a crowdfunding campaign to construct similar shelters for other homeless people in his South Los Angeles neighborhood.

The first stage of the world's largest Rhino airlift from South Africa to Botswana to protect the dwindling population of the animals and offer better protection from poachers. The relocation project which is called Rhinos Without Borders, aims to move 100 rhinos by 2016.

As seen on the Telegraph UK, the world's cheapest place to visit on a tight budget is Iran, followed by Egypt, Indonesia, Gambia, Malaysia, and Tunisia. A ranking of 141 countries in terms of price competitiveness,  compiled by The World Economic Forum's biannual Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report takes into account air taxes and airport charges, the price of hotel accommodation, fuel prices and the cost of living.


Have a lovely weekend folks.

  9. You have the best quotes.

    I left a pizza place this evening and saw a homeless man. He was begging me for a dollar. I don't give money way but I will gladly feed anyone that's hungry, so I insisted that he follww me back in the pizza place and he could order anything he wanted, but he said no. He wanted money. he insisted on it. I was saddened. I didnt give him any money.

  10. @Claudia: Big hearted fellow indeed, thanks so much for stopping by!

    @Alieux: Thank you for that. What a compelling story, and I would have done the same I think...because giving out money may just help fuel their addictions, better to buy a warm meal instead. Appreciate you sharing that!

  15. Wonderful news! What a kind thing to accomplish if you have extra $ - to help others. ~ Thanks for stopping by, great weekend! :)

  16. What inspiring stories! A house on wheels - such a simple idea but provides essential shelter. Good to see something done to help the rhinos. And I've always wanted to see the pyramids, but I wonder if recent political strife has to do with the lower cost of visiting these countries.

  17. interesting snippets today...I wonder if that house on wheels would cause a problem in cities, such as not being allowed.

  26. @Suzanne Furness: Indeed we all should help each other always. Many thanks!

    @ ^.^: You are welcome and thanks to you too for dropping by!

    @Ygraine: Many thanks and appreciate your visit, do have a lovely week!

    @Kati: Thank you for your visit!

    @ humbird: Yes I quite agree, helping others is a good thing especially if one is already so blessed. Thanks for visiting!

    @Nick Wilford: Yes the recent political strife in some of those countries may have a hand in that, hopefully it means more people will be able to afford to visit. Thanks!

    @Christine: I thought the same to about the moving houses, but apparently as long as she moves it around every couple of days, it should be no problem. Not sure how that would work in other cities though. Thanks for that!

    @Janyl Benyl: Appreciate your thoughts, and have a nice week!

    @Gabrielle: I'm glad you found it so, thank you!

  30. How brilliant is that about the shelter for the homeless woman. We currently have my wife's homeless brother living with us. he had a very hard upbringing that I think for anyone would have ended up in a similar position.
