I just read this book Three Cups of Tea. Its an incredible true story about Greg Mortensen and how he went from climbing K2 to starting a massive humanitarian project (or projects to be more accurate) and becoming the co-founder of a non-profit organzation. I would recommend it to anyone. Anyone and everyone! A good reminder in a sometimes depressing world, that people really are good and that anything is possible. But even if I wasn't able to talk you into reading the book, visit www.threecupsoftea.com to learn about Central Asia Institute, Pennies for Peace, Greg Mortensen and Three Cups of Tea.
