  • Global DIRT and Can-do.org on AC360 | Global DIRT
    Global DIRT was mentioned on the July 13 episode of Anderson Cooper 360 or AC360 In a segment about the poor planning and coordination between food warehouses and various centers of need ie orphanages and tent cities Global DIRT was cited for its knowledge in this particular area Adam s photos of multiple fully stocked warehouses were used in the segment Dr Sanjay Gupta s clip also included shots of Can do org s team supplying an orphanage with very little food from a fully stocked warehouse only a few blocks away The segment was meant to showcase the need for further cooperation between NGOs and centers of need so that the victims of this earthquake may be better served There is absolutely no need for warehouses to remain full if people are suffering and starving Global DIRT and Can do org are working hard to rectify this problem Our team is currently working to obtain a copy of this clip to showcase here on the website so that all of our supporters will be able to view it Thank you again for all of your support And if you saw the segment please feel free to comment and tell us what you thought about us other NGOs and or Haiti 6 months later Thanks again Update Thanks to Twitter s newsjunkie365 we have a link to the actual clip discussed here so that those of our supporters who missed it last night would have the chance to watch it Thanks again newsjunkie365 As always please feel free to comment here and let us know what you think kdriscoll s blog Add new comment Comments 6 months and little change by Supporter 07 14 2010 07 09 So upsetting to see that the same issues we were running into in

  • Restrepo Event - Washington DC | Global DIRT
    Tasked with an impossible mission in an unlivable section of war torn Afghanistan Restrepo makes the audience live the life of an American soldier for 90 minutes The thriller created by the author of The Perfect Storm focuses on the individual experiences of a group of soldiers The documentary leaves behind the usual attempt to make a political statement through clever editing and instead focuses on the day to day actions of a unit holding one of the most strategic mountaintops in the United States military history As a US Marine and disaster relief worker I can say from my experience that Restrepo is as true to life as many civilians will ever see without signing up for service I would recommend this film to anyone seeking to understand the daily struggles and stresses that our US fighting forces deal with both on and off the battlefield In the world of cheesy action flicks and tales of love stories gone wrong this documentary is a refreshing way for military veterans to say This is what a deployment is really like Transcending both generations and military branches Restrepo captures what numerous attempts before could not the life of those that stand watch for American freedoms and the American way of life It shows a true glimpse at those willing to remain awake at night in a foreign land so that Americans can sleep peacefully in their beds at home This positive view reminds us that there are men willing to do whatever is necessary on the behalf of the United States As a current member of the US military I thank you for making this film and representing our generation of soldiers sailors and Marines For all those out there reading this take a break in your day to see this
