I’m still connected to my home in Denver and I’m still able to support good projects going on there, at least online. Like most people in Denver, I wasn’t born there but chose to make it my home. There’s something unique about a place where so many people choose to live, and I’m continually impressed by the amazing work people are doing there.
I’ve been traveling in Central and South America for the past two years, and seeing many different places in various countries has shown me the importance of doing good on the local, community level. In talking with world-changers at different NGOs in my travels (for my blog writing about people doing goodin the world), I’ve seen that while getting support from afar certainly helps, nothing gets done without the support of the local community.
