Kids of Kathmandu... a wonderful charitiy project!

Can I please ask your attention for this wonderful charity project. I received an email from Kristin telling me about her designer friend living in Brooklyn who has started an inspiring project that pairs furniture design with funding for children's education.... bit more about the story... "Last year, furniture maker Andrew Raible, and photographer Jami Saunders spent their honeymoon volunteering in a Nepali orphanage, living and working with 41 kids in Kathmandu. Back at home, the couple continued thinking about the children and decided to start the non-profit organization Kids of Kathmandu, which utilizes photography, art and design to raise awareness and funds for these kids.

Their first initiative, The Desk Project, is focused on furniture design. They reached out to established New York architects, designers, artists and woodworkers to design and fabricate a child's desk to be auctioned off with the proceeds going towards the children's education in Nepal. The idea is that each desk sold will support a child for one year. In response, they've received 11 unique children's desks from 11 different designers (including MADE, Uhuru and Daniel Moyer). The desks are now on display and up for auction!(text by Chris and Kristin)
