Good intentions are no longer enough. I wanted to support humanity in my own way. Meaningful World was a natural
way for me to help the victims of tsunami.

destructive and failing all around us I could not just sit back, be overwhelmed and do nothing… I am doing something
with Meaningful World.
Meaningful World cultivates well-being, relatedness, a deep awareness and understanding how to elevate some of the
world's suffering. Our choices impact all living systems and I choose to be an agent of good.
