Annie Griffiths has founded a non profit group called Ripple Effect to document and empower women finding solutions to the world's hardest problems. It is great work from her, Ami Vitali and Lynn Johnson.
Last fall I had the good fortune of working with Chris Purcell on a project for South African Tourism. He showed me his personal project Why don't we do it in the Road. It is a wonderful film and is now available on Vimeo.
