Two inspiring charities


Last week I met Phyllis Rodriguez, a lady whose son died in the Twin Towers on 9/11.
Now she has befriended the mother of Zacarias Moussaoui, the only terrorist convicted for the attacks. Her positivity is inspiring.


I also met John Wood last week. J
ohn Wood launched Room to Read after a trek through Nepal. He visited several local schools and was amazed by the warmth and enthusiasm of the students and teachers, but also saddened by the shocking lack of resources. Driven to help, John quit his senior executive position with Microsoft and built a global team to work with rural villages to build sustainable solutions to their educational challenges.
