Update #9

The Run Across Palestine Isn't Over

Comment

Friends and Supporters! 

We are back home and slowly settling into normalcy.  But we will never forget the amazing experiences we had and the deep connections we forged.   And our commitment to helping the amazing people we met is not going to end!  In fact in many ways the fundraising component of the Run Across Palestine is just beginning.  I hope these videos speak for themselves about the beauty and resilience of the Palestinian farmers.  The need to help them plant more Olive Trees is greater than ever.   We are encouraging everyone to consider making a small donation towards this cause at www.RunAcrossPalestine.org

In fact On The Ground had a great idea to help raise some money: 

Host a Palestinian “dinner and a movie” party to help spread the word!

All 7 episodes of the People and the Olive now live in a few different places.   All the Youtube videos can been seen on one page here: http://onthegroundglobal.org/the-people-and-the-olive-video-series/

And just today we created a Vimeo channel, where you can view higher-quality HD versions of all the videos: https://vimeo.com/channels/292633

Please share these videos with friends!  And stayed tuned for more updates soon.

And lastly, these videos would not have been possible without your support!! 

In gratitude,

Aaron
