FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

New Kickstarter of the Month: Dream Traveler: Africa

New Kickstarter of the Month

Every month or so I feature a new Africa-ish Kickstarter project on FUUO.  This month I am supporting a children's book being written called Dream Traveler: Africa.  As a new father to a beautiful baby girl (with another baby on the way this October!) I thought it appropriate to support this cool project since it's something I can read to my daughter.  

If you aren't familiar with Kickstarter you should get familiar--it's a crowd-based charity/fundraising website.  If a project doesn't meet its stated financial goal in the allotted time you aren't charged anything.  Depending on the amount you donate you receive different incentives (like a signed copy of the book in this case)!  

But beware, it's addictive.  

Past FUUO Supported Kickstarter projects (so far they've all been funding successes):
Lessons of Basketball and War: A documentary project 

Smallsmall Thing: A Documentary Project

Save Blue Like Jazz The Movie Project

Finally, please check out the charity below.  They aren't a kickstarter project but are an excellent organization.
