THIS “FLYING HOSPITAL” OUTFIT WINS MY COOL CHARITY AWARD HANDS DOWN!
If I actually had any spare money to “give back”, donating to these guys would be near the top of my list.
Global Peace Partners is passionately building non-profit state-of-the-art Flying Hospitals which will bring emergency responders, critical supplies and equipment, anywhere in the world within hours of global catastrophe, before government aid bureaucrats even have time to get their pants on.
Check out this picture from their site of a flying operating room -how cool is this? Apparently they’ve convinced some of the folks in the aerospace industry to get involved designing and funding and perhaps piloting these flying ambassadors of good will, wherever disaster strikes.
Some might wonder why the guys who also manufacture fighters, bombers and other aircraft of destruction would want to be involved in a charity that sends Flying Hospitals anywhere they are needed. I say “good on them”! Even Ebenezer Scrooge of Dicken’s fame once had a change of paradigm exclaiming (I paraphrase):
“The World doesn’t need another bomber, what we need is more 747’s converted to mobil emergency response hospitals”
I have no affiliation with these guys, but was truly impressed by what I read at their site at http://globalpeacepartners.org/AirHospital.html
When I’m rich, famous, good-looking and ready to “Give Back”, I hope Global Peace Partners is there to receive my generous donations.
