I usually don't watch too much tv.....but dh and I were worn out today and flipping through channels . For anyone that has never heard of this show.....this is the "plot" . A millionaire has to spend a week living in "poverty" ...meet "poor" people , and decide how much money he/she will give them . The "poor" people have no idea this person is a millionaire . That being said...I have mixed feelings . I think it's great someone with money would want to give to others less fortunate...on the other hand I feel as if these people should know how hard it is for us working folks . Why does it have to take a person to live like a "poor" person to realize that this is REALLY what the world is like ? I'm not saying that everyone who has money should feel bad , there are tons of people out there who have worked very hard , came from poverty and broken homes to get to where they are . I do believe , however , that if you are able to help out ...then do it . Not for tv , not to make you feel better , not to brag to your friends . It should be done because you can . In the world we live in now...we all need these millionaires to help us out ,lol ! Funny thing is...these rich people learned how happy poor people are , how they live life trying to make others happy and welcoming others into thier homes even if they coudn't afford it . I think alot of us could sit and ponder this...if not to help out others....to get ourselves into a better state of finance .
