Play Pumps International

I ran across this web site the other day related to an effort to provide water pumps to Sub-Saharan Africa that are powered by children playing on a merry-go-round.  It’s one of those very good, very simple ideas where when I hear about it I slap myself in the forehead and say “duh”.

Please take a look and consider a donation.

    Chris – Years ago some people spearheaded an idea to harness the energy from the gyms across America where people paid to exercise – but many gym members rejected the idea saying that they would not be used like farm animals to produce electricity – seemed like a great idea to me – as is this.

  2. John,
    Thanks for visiting and you comment.

    The gym idea is a great idea, at least to provide power to the individual gym. Most of those in the USA, however, would probably expect compensation.
