Thank You For Sharing This Summer With Us!

It’s Maggie here and I’m feeling like I have a lot to share so here goes! We’ve felt so loved and supported this summer. It’s kind of unbelievable that YOU, our Facebook pals and BlinkNow family have grown to almost 20,000 people. 20,000!?!? That’s a whole lot of love. We couldn’t do our work without you. I repeat, we COULD NOT do this without you. As a team we’re always marveling at our community, and how cheerful, warm and positive you all are. You are doers and world-changers and when we have our hard days, the moments of overwhelm, where the work feels really really hard, you’ve been there for us through and through. It makes this space a wonderful place to be and share each day.

Second Annual Tri For Kopila

Ravi and I have arrived back in the U.S.A. for the 2nd annual #TriForKopila this weekend!!! Our last couple months in Nepal have been busy, busy, busy, and poor Ravi has been battling back-to-back ear infections and pink eye so we’re laying low, recovering from our jet lag, eating lots of grapefruit, and doing last minute preparations for the big race. Both of my sisters are flying in from the west coast this year to run the race and my mom is racing too. Even my 83 year old grandma is doing the TRI. Just kidding, she’ll be at the finish line cheering and holding Ravi though.
