K! says to Jeneane, in her comment section, that Gifthub is a Mexican Phone Store. How right he is. We are waiting here among the potatoes, beer, and check cashing services for Peter's Karoff's "Long Distance Call" to come through.
For ten years TPI has been on an entrepreneurial mission to see if the "loose affiliation" of wealth, however defined - individual, family, corporate or community could be encouraged to answer the "long distance call," to see if these could become days of "miracle and wonder".
The question you have to ask is whether a loose federation of the gifted, the talented and the wealthy can come together not to advance a self-serving ideology of wealth, nor make excuses, nor give one another awards, but to make sacrifices in a good cause - none better, democracy. By definition, Peter, the rich cannot do it alone. Nor the Winners talking among themselves about how tough it must be for Losers. We need a Mexican Phone Store, like your father's hardware store, where we can get together as neighbors, and wait for the call. How else will we create trust and transparency?
