One of my good friends and I were having a little chat and she told me that these people she knew spent 35,000 dollars to renew their wedding vows in Mexico.

I wanted to barf when i heard that. Seriously! 35,000 on vow renewal. What the heck! I then did the calculations thinking of KidsLake and it turns out that 35,000 can buy 5000 mosquito nets at 7 dollars a piece. Each net can protect 4 kids from Malaria and that means that with that money, ONE FAMILY could have potentially protected 20,000 children. In my opinion, thats a far better way to spend 35,000 dollars.

But thats just me.
