There is still room left in the upcoming natural building and sustainable 
living events at the Pun Pun Community in Thailand. Please be in touch if 
you are interested. Feel free to pass this news on to others who might like 
to join. Following this, there will be another message about helping to 
build a center for orphaned and abused children in another part of 
Thailand, as well as other programs in Argentina.

Thank you,
