"It's like going from grammar school to grad school." — Mary S.

Humans have lived on the planet for thousands and thousands of years, long before we were causing green house gasses to be emitted. With the incredible healing power of the Earth and man-made technology, we have the capacity to reverse this downward spiral in one generation.

Take calculators regarding carbon, plastics, and slavery.
Footprints review and spending techniques.
We'll go over your footprints and discuss things like where you were surprised, happy, see room for improvement, and any questions you may have. We'll quickly look at some carbon, plastics, and poverty projects to which you can donate right away (no affiliate) so you reverse your footprints for the month. You'll also be shown three tried-and-true techniques for spending money to do away with buyer's remorse, have more agency in the marketplace, be more satisfied with your choices, and save a lot of money. One student saved $250 in her first week.
Donating efficiently for maximum benefit.
For the planet: We'll explore what makes charities highly ranked, the vetting process, how if charities get bad press it may be a good thing, and look at the number one ranked charity in the world. We'll discuss metrics for a good return on investment with charities so you can have confidence every dollar you spend is going a long way. If you have charities you like, we'll go over vetting them.
For you: We'll explore the science the proves giving is good for you in mood, health, and wealth. We'll review laboratory studies, group studies, and population studies that show giving is as good for you as eating well, exercising, and good sleep. We'll keep up the pace from the first week and review your spending techniques, any spending pattern discoveries, other changes you've noticed, and tally weekly and aggregate savings.
Clothing supply chains.
You'll learn patterns of government deals with corporations, how people are kept in the poverty cycle, why jobs are moved overseas, and how to determine if something is priced so cheaply that it likely means social justice was overlooked.

Like in previous weeks, we'll review your spending techniques, any spending pattern discoveries, other changes you've noticed, and tally weekly and aggregate savings.
Developed country prosperity.
We'll look at the disparity in wealth between developed countries and non-developed and within each. All countries have a poor, middle, and wealthy class.

Still wondering if this is best for you right now? I designed my work to be "beyond free" meaning it's designed to give you way more back than you'll invest in quality of life, time, and money. I want is to live in a world where people are exposed to the joy of giving and understand the agency they have in the marketplace.
