Parting Note from Kelsey!
Things like sweatshops, child labor, and people working for $24/month, are all
just symptoms of the extreme poverty that is prevalent across our world. Yes,
we should try to be engaged consumers (I have some tips here to educate yourself and think about the impact your school has), but it doesn’t end there. I believe we
need to become glocals – global and local citizens. We need to be better donors
(giving like Bill Gates gives), volunteers, and neighbors. Each of us needs to look at
what we are good at and share that with the world to fight poverty in our own
communities and around the world. I’m currently on a mission to Go Glocal. I'd love for you to join me. We might not always be able to control the impact that forces like globalization
have on our lives, but we can control the impact our lives have on the world.
Happy travels! Kelsey
