Take a look at this video from Advent Conspiracy. Wow.

Ten billion dollars is a lot of money. So much, in fact, that we may be tempted to imagine that a problem like safe drinking water is hopelessly unsolvable. But did you catch how it compares to what we're spending for Christmas gifts?

Think about that for a minute. Imagine what could happen if we all re-directed just a small percentage of our gift-giving budgets to deal with a life-threatening issue together. It wouldn't take much to cut out $2 from each $100 in the gift-giving budget, and the results could change the world.

Perhaps we need to adjust our priorities a bit.
