Michael BrazeauYou should start a charity so people can actually give their money to a real charity that uses the money for what it's intended. You're an inspiration brother. After seeing what you did in Africa I'll never donate to another charity unless it's approved by you

Ayomide BabaTundeAnother great day Most every one can use more money , but in a tight economy , how do you supplement an inadequate income or even replace a salary that's disappeared because of a job loss ? Need extra cash for ... routine monthly bills? Savings for a child's education ? Gifts to a church or charity ? Medical expenses ? A dream vacation ?AIM GLOBAL business opportunity will help you EARN and keep more C-A-S-H . ASK ME HOW ?
