  1. Hey Alan! Thanks so much for posting about the campaign. We really appreciate the help!
    As for the use of a "token currency" there's considerable data to back up the idea of using a token economy in the developing world. I found this article that supports that and outlines some of that research.
    Obviously this is a really big conversation and I think your post could spark a great discussion. I've put "benefits of a token economy" on the upcoming blog list.
    Thanks again!
