    I do not see the financial sense in spending thousands to get on a plane to travel across the globe for an Untrained person to do some task. If a ten year can do it, so can a member of the community. And I don't understand the need to get others to participate in the funding of such activities in order for you to meet the requirement to go. A far less amount donated could allow the community there to do the work and get paid for the task. You are still benefiting from the thrill of a plane ride and seeing the world. In a way the poorest of the poor are an attraction or entertainment of some sort. That is a bit creepy to me. And when you travel to such places likely you will buy stuff. Now if you have some special skill like in healthcare it would make sense to spend time abroad working for a medical organization.

    I have respect for the Eyres; at least when I read an excerpt from one of their books I appreciated that it was not the normal pop culture stuff.

    Likewise in this piece. It reminded me of Lorenzo Snow's cure for depression: find somebody worse of and help them.
