Here’s a list of what the Mormons could do with $15 Million to improve the lives of others:

  1. Donate 300,000 heifers to developing countries.  1 cow can produce 4 gallons of milk a day, promoting strong bones in sick children.  www.heifer.org
  2. Buy 2 Renoir paintings and donate them to an art musem for public education.
  3. Donate 2500 Dell computer labs (that’s 20 computers per lab) to a Minnesota school.  www.mncfs.org.
  4. Provide yellow fever vaccinations for the countries of Chad, Benin and Cameroon from 2002-2015.  www.gavialliance.org.
  5. Donate 1.5 million books to in need children.  www.booksforkidsfoundation.org.
  6. Purchase 300,000 acres of rainforest to fight global warming, perserving our planet for future generations.  www.rainforest.org.
  7. Produce all of 2007’s Oscar-nominated documentary films, dealing with such themes as national health care and the war.
  8. Build 100 homes in New Orleans for Katrina victims.  www.makeitrightnola.org.
  9. Pay for 600,000 phone calls to the prevention of child abuse hotline.  www.childhelp.org.
  10. Sponsor 600,000 cats at no kill animal shelters.  www.bestfriends.org.

Or you could strip a minority of its civil rights.
