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."

FUUO Kickstarter of the Month: The Last Safari

FUUO Kickstarter of the Month: The Last Safari

Every month or so I feature a new Africa-ish Kickstarter project on FUUO.  This month I am supporting a really cool project called The Last Safari.  The money supports the making of a documentary about a photojournalist's return to the remote villages she documented a decade earlier.  You can watch a teaser on the site--it looks like a gripping story.  $25 gets you a digital download of the film when it is completed!

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 digital download of the film in this case)!  

But beware, it's addictive.  

Past FUUO Supported Kickstarter projects (so far they've all been funding successes):

Smallsmall Thing: A Documentary Project

Lessons of Basketball and War

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.
