Possible Dreams International begins operations

Welcome to the world: Possible Dreams International!

Regular bloggers may have met Maithri of The Soaring Impulse. This young Australian physician is one of those amazing people you rarely encounter. Gifted in many ways--perhaps his greatest gift is his compassionate heart. He fell in love with the people of Swaiziland--some of the most forgotten people on the planet. He says:

Swaziland is a country where 42% of the population are infected with HIV/AIDS. That’s almost one in two people. As I have written before on these pages, in Siteki there are more coffin salesmen than grocery stores; 75 % of people live on less than one dollar a day; 10% of the population are orphaned children; And there are well over 15,000 orphan led households.

Armed with his belief that we can be the change that's needed in the world, Maithri has already made a difference. Today he launches Possible Dreams International, Inc. It's an avenue for all of us to join him on the front lines of international poverty. If you're serious about wanting to help the poor [and I know you are!] check it out:

But, it just may be better to start with Maithri's blog entry today. Get the whole story in short form--"Possible Dreams International" on The Soaring Impulse.

Isn't it great to get GOOD news today?

The world can't get enough of people like that. The need is only going to get greater and it won't just be third world countries.
You might be interested in trying to catch this but I just heard on
cnn Rick Sanchez that the mayor of Juarez is driving up on his dime to discuss the hell that is Juarez with 250 murders per day!

Billie that interview is on next!

Maithri said...

Thank you so very much Billie,

We are so blessed to have you as our ambassador!

In the light of hope and with our warmest love to you and yours,

Maithri and the whole PDI team

Border Explorer and Maithri,
Thank you. I was in need of some good news.

Border Explorer said...

So glad for everyone who stopped by! Congratulations, Maithri, on this big step--yet another accomplishment in your life. Who knows what will come of it? But it is good news for sure. Thanks, Dusty for posting this on Sirens. And Chani for joining.

Thanks Jim for the TV update. I missed it, but will look for the print aftermath of the interview. Things are horrid in Juarez.
