According to Gulf News the average Kuwaiti family spends KD 3,723 every month, 14% of that budget is spend on food, nothing new there. Families also spent less than 4% on health care and education, mostly because the government pays for both. I wonder what’s the average of the other GCC countries.[Source]
It’s nice to see every once in a while people all over the world do something that is life changing for a person that was wronged. Karen Klein is a bus monitor that got verbally harassed by the 12 – 15 year old boys she was supervising. After the video went viral on YouTube a fundraiser was issued by her name and so far has raised $447,027 with 29 days to go! The initial fundraiser goal was just $5,000. She can now retire with her lifetime covered.
Update: Donations have hit $600,00. With 28 days to go a million doesn’t sound far fetched!
