OP are you high? Why wouldn't you just use the billion dollars to help homeless people? Like if you have $1 billion to throw around, why should one schlub get it, when you could literally help thousands with housing and job training programs and mental health care?

Fuck all the haters. Ideas should be crazy and scary and controversial. And then pared down. Everyone who is just like FUCK THAT, ITS IMPOSSIBLE/DUMB to an idea needs to stop taking things so seriously. An idea is just the start of another idea. I bet if you workshop this it could transform into something awesome. Same goes for any radical idea. People need to use their imaginations instead of their judgments when people throw out thoughts. If you don't, you're a client and not a creative. End rant.

Maybe all the creatives can spend a service day working on the homeless' signs from a copy and art perspective to help them "sell" better and derive more money

I think your idea could work if you made it $1mm. People would most likely donate above that across the country (hopefully). But a BILLION? That's quite a lot ;) but this is why you workshop the idea, all good :)

What if homeless people sell scratch tickets so the money would be donated to the homeless and people get more chances to win smaller prizes?

It's definitely a band aid versus a solve, but who I am to tell someone how to spend their money to keep themselves going one more day. You know how you need a drink after a hard day, they probably need it to go to sleep on a damn bench in the cold. I'm not opposed to food stamp coupons though bc I do know ppl feel the way you do.

A billion could do a lot if you just donated it to homeless aid. People would still change their behaviour for a million, so that's probs the better amount

Pre-COVID you were promised a raise to come in June to accompany the smaller raise and promotion you got in January. Now, your company is like every other company - combating layoffs and going through raise and hiring freezes; which makes the opportunity for that raise look pretty impossible. The thing is, the job you’re doing is at least two levels above what your promotion brought you to and you feel like you’re doing twice the work for half the pay. What do you do?

I’m often excluded from things peers my level are included in, I’m rarely considered for large new opportunities, and end up feeling stalled and looking for a new role. Am I just not finding my fit?
