Recently, I put online a fun and sharable animated music video I made called Veggie Propaganda. (Don’t let the title frighten you.

Aura’s House Partner Working to Help Fight Hunger in Liberia

Hi All,
Kristen here. I just wanted to let you know that  a short documentary I made about Liberia is now being shown on The UN’s World Food Programme’s Youtube Channel and is also available at their Facebook and Twitter sites.
This video looks at the aftermath of Liberia’s civil war and the impact that a simple school meal can have on young children and their families. Please let me know what you think if you get a chance.
Best Wishes,

Happy 5th Birthday Aura’s House! Happy 16th Birthday Aura Hernandez!

Happy Birthday Aura’s House!
Unbelievable. Aura’s House, the online project, is five years old on June 30, 2009.  It was first launched on this day back in 2004 as a humble web page with one simple (but daunting) goal: to raise $4500 to build a safe, sturdy brick home for my sponsored child Aura Yesenia Solis Hernandez (age 10 at the time) and her family of Guatemala.
