A couple'a Rangers contacted me about a week ago and told me they were planning this amazing Ranger trek - I'll let you see what they're up to. It's going to be a lot of fun to see where they end up and how they accomplish getting there.
The most important part of their trip will be the awareness they (with your help) are able to raise. If Rangers (and other veterans) don't know about GallantFew, they won't volunteer as mentors or reach out for a connection as they transition. Too many try it on their own, and it's not a one-man (or woman) patrol. You always need a Ranger buddy, a Battle buddy.
If anyone could travel the world in 80 days without breaking a sweat, it would be Spelman alumna Martice Sutton. The 25-year-old globetrotter’s passion for all things international has taken her from Johannesburg to Istanbul to Paris and back.
Sutton has worked in Hyderabad, India as a social enterprise consultant for Hyderabad's Affordable Private School’s where she worked with education entrepreneurs to develop a blueprint for change. Her greatest accomplishments in India include a TOMS shoes giving event in which 700 students of Grace Model School were given a pair of school shoes as well as championing the first place Design for Change International Education Competition.
It was while working to create better experiences for young girls in India, that Sutton realized young African-American girls in America, needed someone to champion their causes too. Sutton's fierce desire to explore every inch of the planet also serves as the catalyst for her new venture -- Girls Going Global, a growing social enterprise designed to expose African-American girls to the cultures of the world. To date the organization has hosted a Passport To the World global engagement summer camp in Philadelphia, sponsored first time passports for girls 10-16, and have created two educational travel experiences to Toronto, Canada and Turrialba, Costa Rica. In July 2015 GGG will be embarking on it's third international travel experience to Belize!

This week Andrew speaks with Blake Morris.
Blake Morris focuses on the production of memories, rather than objects, in order to highlight the transformative nature of art and its importance as something experienced rather than consumed.
Morris uses walking as his primary creative and research practice. Projects have included a yearlong exploration of the public works of Robert Moses, which resulted in over 50 walks throughout the NYC area, and the [untitled] Walk Project, a series of walks that culminated with a walk from Brooklyn to Washington DC. He is a founding member of the Walk Exchange.
We will discuss his latest project Home: A Nomadic Exploration in which he has walked to over 30 homes and lived in them for 3 days each, covering over a hundred miles and staying with friends, acquaintances, and total strangers.
