Today, Vanity Fair’s July 2010 edition was released and Global DIRT received a big jump in publicity. Excitingly, our hard work and close relationship with the team at JP/HRO got us a brief mention in the article focusing on Penn and his hard work in Haiti. The article focuses on Penn’s devotion to his cause in Haiti and how he manages his camp. Global DIRT is mentioned due mainly to the tireless and creative efforts of Adam Marlatt. Written by Douglas Brinkley and entitled “Welcome to Camp Penn,” the article mentions Global DIRT as a “ragtag…group of young, committed hellions” that commits itself to, in Adam’s words, “extreme humanitarianism.” We’re working hard and it’s great to have some publicity to share our work with the world. Please go check out this months Vanity Fair (with Elizabeth Taylor on the cover) to read the full story and to enlighten yourself on some of Penn’s hard and devoted work to the cause in Haiti.
