Hey everyone! 😃

Today I hope to share with you 6 things that I am thankful for, and 6 facts that will show you why we should be so thankful for what we have! There are SO many things that we can easily take for granted and that we have no idea people are living without! Be ready for some pretty shocking facts that will blow your mind!

I hope you enjoy today’s post!



FACT – 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. 

WOW! Isn’t that shocking? It makes me realize how blessed I am to have SO much food! I had no idea that many people did not have enough food!



FACTIt is estimated that 150 million people, or about 2 percent of the world’s population, are homeless. However, about 1.6 billion, more than 20 percent of the world’s population, may lack adequate housing.

This is so shocking! I realize that I am among some of the most wealthy people in the world because I have adequate housing! It is incredible that 150 million people are homeless!



FACTAs of 2010, 1.2 billion people were still living without electricity!

Electricity is something that is SO easily taken for granted! When the power goes out at my house, it is so frustrating but makes me realize how much we depend on it and how thankful I should be for it!



FACT – 58 Million Children Around the World Don’t Have Access to Education

This is another thing that I had no idea about! We can so often complain about our schoolwork, but, WOW, I need to be thankful for it! So many people don’t have the opportunity that I have.



FACT – 400 Million People Lack Basic Health Services.

WOW! Another shocking number! Healthcare I find is SO easy to take for granted. Having treatments for cancer, diseases, and injuries we are so used to have, but many people live without having this luxury.



FACT4 Billion People Are Still Without Internet!

WOAHHH – That is crazy! This useful tool I so easily take for granted! Just think, 4 Billion People don’t have the chance to blog! Even blogging is so easily taken for granted.


Wow! I have a lot to be thankful for! I could go on for a long time, I am blessed with so much! Many of the luxuries we experience are unavailable to much of the world population. We should remember to thank God for all of the blessings we enjoy and have access to!

Thank you for reading, and if you have the time, please comment!

    This is crazy! It is so true that we take so many things for granted, and we don’t think about how many people don’t have these basic things. It makes me think twice before I complain about a giant pile of homework… Thank you for sharing this! 🙂

    You are very right! In the Philippines (country of my family’s origins), many live in slums and without running water or healthy/fresh food or electricity. Most drop out of school because of: poverty, need to get a job, and other reasons.

    I’ve grown up with people around me in a state that should have been better and I’ve seen times which i shouldn’t have had to see. And yet, I can still be horribly ungrateful so this post really made me smile and remind myself to be thankful! Thanks, Brad!

    Wow. Those numbers make you stop and think. It’s hard to believe that 4 million people don’t have internet, or enough water or food. Even here in Canada. Thanks for sharing. -Jo

    This was so humbling and eye-opening! It is so important to be reminded of this, because it’s extremely easy to be burdened by first-world problems when we are already so completely blessed. Thanks for sharing this, Brad!
