“I just had fun with it.”
When speaking at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, our fearless leader Kathy Eldon didn’t acknowledge any nerves she may or may not have had and decided to activate the audience by getting them to stand up and shake it off!
Kathy is currently in New York speaking at the UN Humanicy Conference – discussing the human side of diplomacy. Scroll down for more photos from our team taking ON the UN!
Behind the scenes at the conference!

So great to show Jason Russell’s film about Dan, After the Fall, and Food Chains at the UN!

Celebrating the Life of Dan Eldon on his Birthday!
For those of you who haven’t experienced our favorite summer (slightly Kenyan) tradition, the English translation for “Sundowner” is an evening of good music, decent people, and – if you’re lucky – some good ole fashioned booze. All joking aside, we believe in the power of a creative community to make an impact on this world of ours. The purpose of this event is to gather that community together.
We hope you can join us!

This weekend, Amy and I had the privilege to help kick off Invisible Children‘s Fourth Estate Summit. Invisible Children are the same people that brought you the viral sensation Kony 2012. After showing an incredible piece about Dan – Invisible Children’s inspiration – Amy and I were interviewed by Invisible Children Co-Founder Jason Russell in front of 1500 participants and educators. Not a bad way to spend the weekend!

To see the piece about Dan as well as the interview with Jason, Amy and I, scroll through to 1:36:46. The interview lasts until 1:58:27.
I am truly honored that Kweku and Ndaba Mandela nominated me to receive the Daily Points of Light Award on their grandfather Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday. I am especially touched by Kweku’s unexpected comments on ABC and Yahoo News.
Nelson Mandela’s legacy is so beautifully expressed through Kweku and Ndaba’s Africa Rising Foundation. It’s a pleasure to see how – through their work – they are helping to put their grandfather’s positive vision for Africa into effect.
