BENEFITING: Green Village Zero Rubbish Project

EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2013

Lisa Boohar

THE STORY:


Thank you.....

I feel deeply grateful for the love and support of my family and friends during these first 40 years. The conversations, laughter, adventures, mistakes and revelations that have stemmed from these relationships have helped make me, both good and bad, who I am today. I am humbled by these experiences. As a wise young man I know said recently, "I'm a work in progress". I believe that to be true for me as well. Continuing the journey of discovery during these next 40 years I hope to continue working, both personally and professionally, to make myself and the world around me better than it is today.


Join me.....

As part of my work in this endeavor, I would love to introduce all of you to a non-profit organization that I think is doing incredible work, the Green Village Zero Rubbish project. It brings together elements of my past, present and future in a way that seems to capture the zeitgeist of this important birthday. It's based in India (the country of my birth), was started by a physician who works with Lisa, and it is working to end extreme pollution for future generations. 

GVZR partners with local villagers to help collect rubbish, which is then recycled, composted and re-purposed.  In the one year since this organization was started it has removed more than 40 tons of garbage from 4 villages, half of which was sold back to local recyclers. To learn more about GVZR please visit their website: http://www.gvzr.org.

We hope to raise $5000, which is enough to support the program in 5 villages for one year. Lisa and I are underwriting the first 50%. The site we're using celebrates the power of the crowd (which i think is so cool) -- lots of small donations adding up to effect great change. If you will, I welcome you on this journey with us.
 
Shine on...

Looking forward to continuing the adventure with all of you beautiful people. Thank you, again.
