They Come in the Name of Helping

Posted by alison on February 8th, 2008

Peter Brock, a student at Skidmore College produced this documentary, They Come in the Name of Helping.  It’s a different perspective on international philanthropy – mainly from the people who are supposed to benefit.  This came to my attention through Peter Deitz’s blog where he also posted a great interview with Peter Brock.  Click here to watch the film.

    Hii Ms Alison and other readers,

    Watch this short movie… or other short movies in the website given below. Almost a dollar gets donated for a selected charity for every view.


    And wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day
