If Money Was No Issue What Would You Build?

I would build an orphanage with a pool and community gardens. Hire people that would love these kids with an unconditional love. And perhaps a village for homeless military vets to help out with the community gardens etc. There's so much more, but what would you build?

You and I think alike because those two things are what I would build. There is a real need for orphanages these days and I think they would function so much better for a child than foster care. And there are thousands of vets on the street--we would have to have some mental health care in their villages, too, as well as some other special things. I really believe orphanages, if properly run, would turn out a lot more well adjusted, happy adults than our current foster care system. I wish I could build one and keep it running.

So true. We just need the right people to be there for these kids. Our foster care is definitely all that ... but I do know some amazing people who have made it work for the benefit of the kids. Kudos to them. But I love the idea of a properly run orphanage and a place for our vets.

definitely a self dependent orphanage will be on the cards wre every child will be given enough oppurtuy for even higher studies and good living an orphanage so good that smday all parents wish their child to be an orphan

Well maybe not that they would want their kids to be orphans ... but it would be an awesome thing to have that good of an orphanage.

I's build a big theatre, where the ticket prices aren't so expensive, so even the poorer people could go and enjoy a nice play. Also, a more modern orphanage with not luxury, but convenient lifestyles (there would be better, more healthy food, TV, radio, Internet access, optional DIY lessons, even a cinema room and some concerts, too every now and then). Oh, and I would buy a place for a yard sale. Unfortunately, in my country, there are only really few yard sales and exchange bazaars.

Ah, a theatre with low ticket prizes. That would be nice. Love your idea for the orphanage and that's very interesting about the yard sales. I guess we have so many that we take them for granted. On any given weekend, someone is having a yard sale.

those are all wonderful things. I would have a resort for stray animals so that they could live their lives free from danger. Of course people could take them home. I would also supply free vet bills for people who could not afford the cost. I would make a lot of low rentals for all the people in my city who cannot afford housing. I would start an organization for people with handicaps or disabilities or need hospice care who would get all the services they need period.

Those are truly wonderful, winterose. Affordable housing, now there's a thought.

I would build greenhouses on the campus where I work with the adult disabled and hire master gardeners to help the clients learn about growing things. I have a client right now who would love to have bananas, oranges and grapefruit growing nearby, but this is Kansas. The truth is that these adult exceptional people can learn about anything and would probably be a success in their endeavors. Many of them have become clay artists in the studio owned by the agency. I think I would build and support a free clinic to do dental and vision treatments for those in need. There is no provision in medicare or medicaid for those needs for anyone over 21. Not for the elderly or the adult disabled or the homeless. I guess those two places are where I would start.

Very awesome, my friend. I wish we really did have the funds for places like this.
