Well, tonights diary entry is going be short as I must get back to my dissertation, I’ve been working to pretty it up and am pretty pleased with where it’s at. I am in two minds about actually taking a second project on my own back once this is finished to investigate certain areas further.
Anyways the thing I wanted to discuss today was Paying it Forward. Basically the theory is that one good thing should lead to another, or cashing in on good karma for when you need it in the future. I was asked to explain what I meant in terms of giving £1000 a year personally from my salary to help animals for the 40+ years of my career. Basically for every £1 I recieve in help now, I will make sure that £1 carries on working after I graduate as a vet directly helping animals that are in need that may not otherwise be able to get the help. Hence paying it forward, I am recieving a large supply of good karma from a large amount of people. Once I graduate I will be passing that karma on.
Basically £40,000 is:
- £1 given by 40,000 people (see give a pound)
- £5 given by 8,000 people
- £10 given by 4,000 people
- £50 given by 800 (see sponsor a day in my diary)
- £100 given by 400 people
- £500 given by 80 people
- £1000 given by 40 people
I know that its possible, I need to reach these people that are able to help so every single person that retweets something on twitter, or likes it facebook, or even emails a link directly to someone is amazing and I can’t thank you enough! Please keep getting the word out there as many ways as possible!
