Hi Adventure Philanthropists,
This past week, my friends Pamela and Jon were traveling in Burma. Because of the iffy phone connection, they asked their friends to call Jon’s mother Ma-Pat to wish her a Happy 80th Birthday in their stead. And we did, in droves.

So don’t borrow the book, buy your own copy of Adventure Philanthropist or give a copy as a gift today!

A cruise along the Bosporus is one of the highlights of any visit to Istanbul. Not only does it provide an unparalleled vantage, but provides a sense of history for this complex region.
