Transcript of Peter Singer's prezi

By: Priscilla Mendoza, Denise Sherwood, Ricardo Lerma, Cesar Martinez The Solution to World Poverty Cesar Martinez Jr. Peter Singer states "Again, the formula is simple: whatever money you're spending on luxuries, not necessities, should be given away." The author implies that the money they waist on luxuries should be donated to help the least fortunate. Denise Sherwood Ricardo R. Lerma Peter Singer states that "Suppose that there were more owners of priceless vintage cars—Carol, Dave, Emma, Fred and so on, down to Ziggy—all in exactly the same situation as Bob, with their own siding and their own switch, all sacrificing the child in order to preserve their own cherished car." The author here used the example of how people would sacrifice a childs life in a situation over their luxury. Priscilla Mendoza "For one thing, to be able to cosign to death when he is standing right in front of you takes a chilling kind of heartlessness; it is much easier to ignore an appeal for money to help children you will never meet" explains how there is people that feel some kind of sympathy when they actually see the children being hurt and are more willing to help them out economically. People should stop wasting their money on luxury objects and instead donate it and helping the children.in poverty, even though you don't know them. By sacrificing ourselves and our money to change the lives of children in need. According to Peter Singer "Bob did not have to look into the eyes of the child he was sacrificing for his own material comfort. The child was a complete stranger to him and too far away to relate to in an intimate, personal way." This means Bob was willing to be there for the children and sacrifice himself in order to help better the children. He didn't need to know the child personally or have a relationship with them, he would relate to them in his own special way by helping and comforting the child.
