From the Community Blog: Health by a Thousand Band-Aids
This week in GOOD's community blog, reader waynejsmith proposes a new social business that would allow people to automatically donate tiny sums of money to a common pool to help people without health care.He writes:"The idea allows people to give small amounts of their pretax paycheck each week to pay for others' health care without any incurred risk and by bypassing government channels. It is privatized health care philanthropy administered on an individual payout basis."It's inspiring that Wayne is willing to wade into the mire of the existing American health care system to help. And he's done his homework. If you can offer him advice or help, get in touch. He's asking for it.Photo of the Penny Harvest Field at Rockefeller Center by Flickr user goodrob13 used under a Creative Commons license.
