September is Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Washington, DC so we are pleased to introduce Oscar-nominated director Robert Bilheimer.  Bob is using his gift of film making to raise awareness about social, cultural, and humanitarian concerns.  His most recent film “Not My Life” confronts one of World Footprints causes--the tradegy of human trafficking.

Did you know that just by setting aside a small space in your suitcase you could supply crucial education materials or simple medical supplies to children around the world?  Rebecca Rothney founded “Pack for a Purpose” on the belief that every traveler could have a positive and big impact by donating just a little luggage space.

Then, meet Edvinas Minkstimas, one of Europe’s top emerging young pianists.  Edvinas hails from Kaunas, Lithuania and he made his debut at the age of 14 with The Lithuanian National Philharmonic Orchestra
