Edge Of Seven Volunteering

Hi Everyone - It's Tom, the Operations guy here at NEMO. For some reason this is the very first blog entry I've submitted despite it's 2+ year existence - apparently I've got some work to do.

To start off I wanted to share with you a very unique volunteering opportunity. A close friend of mine (Erin Guttenplan) has started an international non-profit volunteering organization called Edge Of Seven. The goal of EOS is to develop "projects that are sustainable, respond to genuine need, and require a minimal investment of funding and resources to bring much needed help to the far corners of the developing world." She and a group of volunteers are heading to rural Nepal this May to construct a school for the local families: Click Here to check out the full story.

She is speaking today about the Nepal project as well as other volunteering opportunities abroad at the REI in downtown Boston from 6:30-8 pm. If you happen to be in the area this evening and this is something that interests you please head over and lend an ear to this amazing volunteering organization - REI Presentation

If you're not local check out her blog Edge Of Seven to see how you can get involved.

Hope you get a chance to check this out - have a great day.
