"Out of Country" is a philanthropy / volunteer / working travel series where I interview ordinary people who have done extraordinary philanthropic and volunteer work in countries around the globe. By joining us and watching the interviews below, you can discover what drives them to volunteer their time, energy and even risk their personal safety by tackling projects in countries some would never visit. Their drive, energy and vision of giving back and helping those in impoverished economies has always piqued my interest. So one day I thought,
"Why not just ask them ?"
I began writing down the people I know or recently met, realizing that such is an omen, telling me what I should do. Before I knew it, I had a list of 10+ that lived within 1 hour of me. The dots were clearly aligning themselves, telling me what I should do, "Just ask them . . .". Click on the picture of the interview below that interests you. Listen to what they have to say to my questions of discovery.
Perhaps their replies can inspire you to do the same - either jump on board with an existing project or create and drive your own.
Then I can interview you in my next episode of "Out of Country"
" . . . No Ordinary Family. . . No Ordinary Life . . . and No Ordinary Journey . . . was the basis of naming our children's charity as succinctly worded by our son Devin . . . "
" In 2008 we and our 2 children embarked on a 5-month family vacation tour of China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos resulting in the birth of the Calgary based children's charity No Ordinary Journey Foundation".
I sit down with founders Laverne Bissky and David Dziadyk of Calgary and ask them to share what their charity is all about, where it has been and the work they have done in South East Asian countries to help young children stricken with cerebral palsy.
