Introducing the Kindred Project

October 13, 2008

I know I’ve been away from the blog for a while, but there have a been good reasons (and a few not-so-good ones, like Notre Dame football games).  However, I do promise to resume posting on a more regular basis.

That said, one of the reasons I’ve been absent is a new project.  The Kindred Project, to be exact.  It is many things – a group that organizes international travel experiences with distinctly personal connections, a group with a mission to open doors to the world and create connections within our multicultural communities, and it is a group that celebrates differences, understanding, and diversity.  We are working towards a world where intercultural experiences and global awareness are the basis for informed decisions as voters, consumers, and donors. 

As Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

There will be more information (and more regular posts from me in general) soon.
