Her name is Bridget Meaney and she was a senior at Castilleja Highschool in Palo Alto, CA. In January 2010 during Castilleja’s Global Week, she heard Sabore’s presentation and was moved by his talk and saddened because of his description of the plight of the Maasai women. She asked if she could help or contribute and then reached out and handed me our first crumpled up $15.00. That’s what started this whole project – the gift from a 17 year old. Bridget is now a sophomore at Duke University. She was home during the Christmas break and had scheduled a visit with one of her teacher’s at Castilleja. We stayed around campus to meet her and let her know that her initial $15.00 has turned into $35,000!!! Just to show you how special she is – she handed us another $20.00 contribution during our chat.
