Your idea
Will you launch your idea as a business or non-profit?

Country your work focuses on
What will be the impact of your idea? 

I hope to focus Baby Boomers on looking deep within to make a difference. This will be a global campaign. For each person who steps out to help, someone else will be helped and both will benefit. It is these kinds of campaigns that help tipping points to occur and bring about long term change for our planet.

Who will help you develop your idea? Why are you the one to make this happen?

I will connect with the lady at The Mandela "46664" office. She and I were classmates this past year on a course on Social Entrepreneurship. I manage and run the Refirement Network in South Africa and the main aim of my organisation is to help Baby Boomers understand that they need to REFIRE and not RETIRE. This campaign will help accelerate the message

How much will it cost to launch your idea? (This can be an estimate)

I have no idea at this stage but I will use social media and look for sponsors once I have permission from The Mandela Foundation
