God Bless us Every One

This year, Open sent a special present to the mums and kids of the Wakhan corridor in north eastern Afghanistan. This region suffers the highest maternal mortality rates in the world and one in three children born there die before their fifth birthday.

Our money will help fund a new mother and baby project run by Mountain Unity. You can find out more abut them at www.mountainunity.org or check out their youtube channel at youtube.com/user/mountunity

Happy Christmas everybody. See you in 2010.

A site made just for Tim

Tim loves to read business books. Or, to be more precise, Tim loves to read the first fifteen pages of business books and then talk about them at length in meetings on the (fairly safe) assumption that nobody else in the room made it to page 16 either.

This site, however, removes the need for him to read more than a single page. Hurrah for Kevin Duncan!

No Rest for the Wicked…

It feels like Christmas, doesn’t it? Yet we still have two appeals to create and a mountain of data to crunch. Still, at least we have cheap fairy lights and sellotape.
