A show in which the host learns survival skills from people living in extreme poverty. The viewers get to spend a few days with the guest/family to learn about their struggles and coping mechanisms, how they make a living, their hopes, and dreams, etc.
Learn from real survival experts that practice the trade without a safety net.
The viewers can collectively help some people in difficult situations.
The viewers get to see what life feels like on the less fortunate side of society.
Show that people can always find hope and happiness no matter what conditions they are in. It just takes some creativity.
How it works
This video is about people that make a living building scrap collecting machines out of scrap cars. Living and working with them for a few days would be perfect for one episode of the proposed show.
Every show would feature people in completely different environment, country, life circumstances.
Improve the guest's quality of life
After each episode, viewers are asked to brainstorm on how the guest could improve their quality of life. All the circumstances have to be taken into account. A list of feasible ideas is composed and sent to the guest.
At the end of each episode, there is a bitcoin wallet / QR code where people can send donations for that guest. If the total amount goes over a certain threshold, the show's host creates a follow-up video showing the donation money being handed over to the guest. If the guest has a phone, understands how bitcoin works, and can use it, then the displayed wallet is owned by the guest directly.
