I have a dream, and one that I share with my husband, is to put up a foundation or start a movement that will recognize and reward honesty, such as people who return lost stuff. We would like to encourage people to become more honest. In this world when graft and corruption is rampant, we pray that this movement will become a ray of hope. I am still thinking of possible rewards and probably get others to join in the effort, especially in finances, so that we can give more generously. I am hoping to get the media to get involved, too. Hopefully soon, this can be done in full swing. What do you think of this? Do you have suggestions?

That was a wonderful dream. Every success starts with a dream. That dream must be backed by a high level of desire that compels the dreamer to design plan to take and make it a reality. Do you have a plan of action to realize your dream? Do you have the means to do it? Are you willing to pay the price to be successful? These are some important questions that need to be addressed! I guess this site is not the best to share your dream, most of us are just looking to earn some bucks. I might be wrong!

that's okay ngippol. yup! i already have a plan, even the designs of prizes. at first we will just fund the campaign, then eventually may be people will be caught up by the movement and start supporting it. :-)

actually strong character should be taught, but in the end it is up to the person to hold on to these qualities such as honesty and other virtues, that do not require a reward. These character virtues only count to the person that has them, which is not always a perfect, because we are only human in the firat place.

The only problem is, if someone is doing the good deed simply to have a chance at winning an award, doesn't that ruin the actual deed since the person was only thinking of themselves?

i agree..some people just do good deeds because of the rewards!

i am thinking of doing it in a way that the person whose belongings were returned will be the ones who will nominate the person. and i will tie this up with the media, because most of the time, people return stuff in the care of media establishments. so this will detract people whose will try to abuse the movement. :-)
