BENEFITING: Digital Democracy
Five hours from New York is a land of ice that is actually filled with volcanoes!
We are heading there in August to share a new experience: the challenge of running a half-marathon (& then relaxing in Icelandic hot springs to celebrate). This summer, we are training, building mental strength and getting ready for the 13.1 mile run.
We value the health, opportunities and resources that make running this race possible for us, and want to make this race about more than our tired feet & strong muscles.
We are humbled by the realization that very few have access to the tools that we take for granted, and have thus committed to raising funds for Digital Democracy. We value the tools and ways that technology makes our lives better and easier, and are excited to support a non-profit that helps other people access these freedoms. We believe in Digital Democracy's proven ability to transform lives of some of the globe's most marginalized people through the use of technology.
Please join us in supporting Dd! Your donation supports us as we run (and will help us keep going when it gets tough)!
And your donation supports Dd's work around the globe (check it out here: www.digital-democracy.org). Your dollars help women in Haiti fight rape and sexual violence, indigenous people in Mexico protect their communities and way of life, and many others.
