A preface to Kirsten’s message below:

As you may know, Kirsten has been in southern India, intermittently for many years.  She is presently working on an educational project to help poor students learn English, so they can follow their own dreams.  Watch her really cute video about the children & their project.  PLEASE donate - even $1 dollar helps & her link to “Kickstarter” fundraising site makes it really easy!  THANKS!  Ann

12/18/09 - From Kirsten:

“I won't bore you with the pre-holiday ‘donate-to-a-good-cause’ stuff, but please check out the link below and be the first to make a pledge.  I'll bring you a special gift all the way from INDIA. Yes...its true, surprise, I'll be home for the holidays.

It's official; we have launched our “Kickstarter” fundraising site. The way it works: We have a funding goal of $4000 (for one DVD episode). If we reach that goal, we get to keep all the money that has been pledged. If we do not, we get nothing. But we can fund raise above and beyond our goal (and hope to!) We would really appreciate it if you could send out the link to people you know as well. There are some pre-holiday special pledge rewards posted if people act fast (only US and Canadian residents).”

Thanks for your help and support!
