Interview with DIRT’s Kim Driscoll on The Grotto Blog

Since my return from Haiti late last month, I have had the pleasure of working alongside my friend Kim Driscoll in our ongoing efforts to raise awareness around the Haitian plight and Global DIRT’s efforts in Haiti. Kim’s primary focus has been reaching out to the online community via DIRT’s Twitter account (@globalDIRT), and our local community, in an attempt to gather support at a grassroots level. She’s also taken charge of planning and coordinating local fundraisers and events, and is the primary reason that people outside of Port-Au-Prince know what Global DIRT is and what we do!

Recently, Kim had the pleasure of being interviewed by The Grotto Blog about DIRT’s background, our mission, and what we are doing to make a difference in Haiti. I hope you will all take the time to read this great interview and learn a little more about our organization!
