Every day for two years, I have given away $1million to a complete random stranger.
I will find people in all sorts of different places. I will walk up to people or I might be standing in line at the supermarket and turn around to the person behind me, or I might be walking down the street.
I will say to these people "Hi, every day I give away $1million dollars, and today is your lucky day!"
At this point I hand them a $1million dollar note. (This is a fake $1million dollar note) But, their face lights up just like it is Christmas morning, they get very excited.
I have had a huge mix of reactions, some people are very touched by this kind gesture and will have a conversation with me.
Some people are just not quite sure what to do or say.
But let's add this up. $1million dollars every day for two years, that equals $730Million given away.
One night, I was being interviewed (Yes, about the 1000 Ripple Effects Book Project) and at the end of the interview, one of the people in the studio audience came up to me and handed me a $1Billion dollar note. Abundance has been given to me.
I was like, Oh WOW! Thank You!
And, I told that person that for the last two years, I had given away $1million every day.
It really does work!.... Whatever you give away really does come back to you.
Manni Ripples is my name. I am representing all the kids out there in the world. I am working with Stacey Huish and the 1000 Ripple Effects Book Project.
My job is to travel the world and to meet people. I get to talk to all sorts of different people and tell them about this incredible project.
I have my very own T-Shirt that has a picture of the book cover on it.
I am going to document my travels with photographs, so that you can see where I have been, who I have met and what I am up to.
I even get my own page on the website. Now, that is exciting!

This blog is not just going to be about reading what I write. At some times, I am going to get you to do things as well. And, today is going to be one of those days.
I ask you to make peace with someone in your life. someone you have been in conflict with for quite some time.
Come back here and share with us what happened
If we look in any dictionary, the definition will say something similar to this.
The Ripple Effect is the continuing and spreading results of an event or action.
Now, just for one moment, imagine sitting on the edge of a lake. This lake is perfectly still, there are no people about, no wind, just quiet perfectly still water, no movement.
You know what it looks like if you take one pebble and drop it into that calm water. Right? Ripples start to appear, and, they get bigger.
That is what is known as the ripple effect.
But, what we don't know and what we can't know for certain is just how far the effects of that one pebble thrown into the water will actually reach. Who or what does it affect?
This is exactly the same as in life. Every action we have and every word we speak has a great effect on those around us. and like that pebble, we just never know how far the effects will carry.
One smile can brighten a person's day. One compliment can make all the difference to someone's confidence. One story can change the world for one person.
I am going to blog and document the journey of creating 1000 Ripple Effects across the world.
