I was in Indonesia on business, and took a day off to visit a hillside school and meet this amazing group of kids and their teachers. I was the first American they had ever met, and I hope this video captures some of the energy and optimism that I experienced first-hand.

I would like to ask you to join me in reaching out to these kids, to keep them in school, to make the world just a little bit smaller. I will match your donation. $40 keeps one child in school for one year/ $400 for ten students.

(Donations are processed through a U.S. non-profit named GlobalGiving, which will provide you a tax receipt. I have supported and worked with GlobalGiving for several years.)

Let me know what you think.
