Here’s a Bonsai Idea for someone to take and run with…The “Pay It Forward” TV Show!
Inspired by Oprah’s “Your OWN Show” I started thinking of what would be a good show that I would be interested in watching and soon came up with this idea:
The Pay It Forward Show
The idea is simply to interview people who have found fortune and fame in their lives and find out how they are paying it forward – meaning helping the world by giving back. Guests could range from the ultra wealthy like Bill Gates and Rupert Murdoch to movie stars, pop stars, politicians, religious leaders, lottery winners, extraordinary heroes and obscure selfless individuals who give of themselves.
It could examine the effectiveness of their gifts and contributions toward improving whatever specific situation or cause they are trying to address. It could seek to expose contradictions and those gifts that are more of a publicity stunt and weeding them out from those that are truly worthy causes.
It could also explore corporate giving and sponsorship and expose any contradictions in that arena.
It could also explore NGOs and non-profits and find out just how they operate and where and how all their funds are actually distributed.
The show could potentially be a huge hit and resource and a way to educate the masses on the whole area of non-profits, NGO’s and social justice. There could be tie-ins to Facebook and social networking.
Anyone interested? If you are then go for it!
This is one of my ways to “Pay It Forward”…
