BENEFITING: ROOTS OF PEACE
I first learned about this organization sitting at the Bridgetender in Tahoe City, when i struck up a conversation with the guy sitting next to me. He had just gotten back from Afghanistan and was psyched about the de-mining initiatives. I used to spend a lot of energy jumping up and down and yelling to try and encourage political change, to stop war or to properly clean up after it. These days I prefer to devote my energy to making a difference where I can, and that starts by putting my money where my mouth is.
