elevision this Wednesday: silent auction to benefit Tibetan Village Project

Via on Jul 20, 2008

Many dedicated organizations build schools and provide medical care to people in rural parts of the world. But I have faith in the Tibetan Village Project more than any other, mostly because its founder—Tamdin Wangdu—grew up in a rural Tibetan village himself. The organization funds projects throughout the region, and runs “volun-tourism” trips to Tibet that benefit both travelers and local Tibetans.

Watch this video for more on their current projects.
