jorge- what I mean is gov. red tape which gets in the way many times with efforts. Also, I find that in the US, once the gov. is involved in a problem, it typically gets worse.

Diane- Thanks, it has truly been a dream come true. I was looking back over the history of this. It was actually birthed in theory in June '06. There were a couple frustrating moments where it was tempting to give up, but I am glad we did not.

For the term, the best I have come up with so far is 'Entrepreneur 2.0' This is the next level of Entrepreneurship which is what this thread was originally about. Another option is Enlightened entrepreneur, but that is a little 'new agey'

The concept for me is redefining how business is conducted:
Microsoft- Bill and Melinda Gates foundation- detached from the consumer. You know you are helping fund it on some level, but how much of your purchase? Plus you do not control it.

Here, the consumer decides whether or not they care about the cause and then make their purchase in direct response.

I think I capture my thinking better on the blog I started. http://feedyourfamilyfeedtheworld.blogspot.com

No wonder so many people are conflicted on the whole concept of business.... It all comes back to the words we use, I guess. Thanks for posting this.

Kurtyordy,

I'm sending you a PM. Purchasing food from your site is the perfect XMas gift for my dad.

He asks every year for me to either "do something to help someone else" or "donate my time or money." He never wants "stuff."

Pretty good example to set for your kids, huh?

I'm very lucky.

kurtyordy:

Take a look at my www.taxloopholes.com blog post for 12/16/07 - I gave your site a plug as a great example - plus used your entrepreneur 2.0 title. I kindof gave you credit, but would be happy to use your real name...just not sure what it is!

Now, that's networking at its best!

Kurt, how do you locate the children that are mentioned on your webpage?


:cheers:

About the charity, my biggest concern has been how to know when the money I'm donating is actually going to be used wisely.

I am seated on the boards I support so I can be assured my money isnt funding a prostitution ring...


(although, not such a bad idea for a fund raiser, huh?... think Risky Biz with Tom Cruise)

Sorry for the delay everyone. Ice storm walluped us here in Central Pa on Saturday/ Sunday. Spent most of the day doing emergency repairs on my trailer park. Then the ice took me out of power till yesterday afternoon, and ot at the job kept me there till 9 pm last night.

SeanS- I responded to your PM, but I wanted to agree. Very cool dad. I hope I can pass that value on to my kids

Diane- Thank very much. That post generated a good amount of traffic this weekend. So thanks. Not sure if you were kiddng or not about not knowing my real name. It is Kurt Yordy.

S928- All the children are currenly sponsored through PH-C.com. We are hoping to ad more charities in the future once we get more momentum.

I bet that seemed like a no brainer.... but, I hated to credit you and have it be the wrong name. What if your last name was really "Ordy" and you went by "Kurty"? (OK, I've never known a Kurty, but there's always a first time) Maybe your last name was "Urtyordy" and K stood for Kenneth... There were so many options and apparently I need more caffeine, or sleep.....

In case you wondered why I use "Diane Kennedy" as my posting name....it's because my name is...wait for it.... Diane Kennedy.

Good points. Funny thing is, until I was about 10 most people who knew me called me Kurty due to having my fathers first name but not middle, so not a junior. There are still some old timers at my church who slip and call me Kurty on occassion. About a month ago, someone at the pulpit referenced me as Kurty. So now you can say you know a Kurty.

Well, if that is the case then Yves Klein-sky is not a woman and we have a famous painter here, right Dana? :D
