Every once in a while i come across info that i have to pass along.   i for one believe that great information definitely makes us think…hopefully, it also starts up a conversation that is not only positive but initiates reaction and action that causes change …  as an ex-smoker having stopped (cold turkey) years ago.  So,

The information below is old,  but you have to wonder just what the numbers are now!

Orzechowski and Walker, economic consulting firm says …                

   $1,712 is the average amt a pack-a-day smoker in the US spends annually

What can $1,712 buy?

  • 170 mosquito nets from nothingbutnets.net and prevent malaria transmission to African families.
  • Provide 11,900 meals for the nation’s hungry through feedingamerica.org
  • Donate to local programs to give 10 kids fun and creative after-school options every day for a month. aferschoolalliance.org for tips on finding an organization near you.
