“At the end of the day, all you really need is hope and strength. Hope that it will get better and strength to hold on until it does.”
I absolutely love this idea.. I will never forget the Zulu word for Learn!

” It is not being poor but being innovative. These are kind of things that inspires me in the midst of poverty in this country where you’ll see people who instead of doing crime choose to go out there on the streets and make a difference in a positive way. Should you happen to see such individuals please show humanity and give that R1 or more cause they are not holding you at gun point like others who will take your life only to take your empty wallet.

Shared by Africa, this is why I live here.
You cannot please everyone and you shouldn’t try to. You will lose yourself in the maze of what everyone else wants from or for you. One day you’ll wake up and see a stranger staring back at you in the mirror. You’ll wonder who you are when you take away everything people have made you to be. Don’t do that to yourself. Don’t carry that kind of burden around for the rest of your life.
Be who you are. Love what makes you who you are. Give yourself time to discover who you want to be and what you’d like to do. Don’t let anyone else take the reigns of your life. They were meant for you and only you. You have to forge the future you desire. You have to find and create your version of happiness. It’s okay if they don’t get you. All that really matters is that you understand you and are happy with yourself.
Don’t lose your soul trying to make everyone else happy. Be yourself. Be happy. Be free and you will touch lives just as you are. For who you are is beautiful and one of a kind.

The plight of the rhino is a symbol of man’s greed on the one hand and his ignorance on the other. Our rhinos will be extinct inside of the next decade if we don’t act fast.
What a horror for our species to not have the Big 5 but the Big 4, because we could not unite to save them! In 2010 some 333 rhino were butchered, in 2011 there were 448 killed and last year 668… In 2013 already 102 rhinos were poached and killed in just 60 days!
I have long campaigned for our species to understand and embrace the concept of ‘connectedness’. Our Earth system has evolved for over 3.5 billion years, each species has evolved to what it is today, whether it be the sea anemone, a butterfly, a flower or a rhino. And each species is inextricably linked to other species on which their very survival depends.
Our planet, our home, is currently undergoing the largest mass extinction in its history…an estimated 50, 000 species are going extinct annually on Earth (which is the conservative view of scientists), and we are the cause of their demise.
I have a few solutions:
And here is an opportunity to GIVE, right now, without it costing you a cent, every time you shop, over and over and over… simply get a MyPlanet card for free, nominate EWT Rhino Fund as your beneficiary and every time you shop money will be donated to save our rhino.
Be an active part of the solution…because you can!
