FW: News from Story of Stuff
- If you've never heard of The Story of Stuff and all the extraneous stuff we have on earth that we manufacture and build, I highly recommend looking into this and obtaining this DVD to show friends, your kids, your students and then discussing our lives.JAllen

We are currently fundraising to support our soon-to-be released International Page which will have translations in seven languages (and offers to help translate many more). We hope to have more detailed dates and news about the translations in our June newsletter.
Our friends at the Hesperian Foundation have volunteered to help distribute the DVD's so you can copy, screen, share with your friends, family, organizations and communities. The initial DVD distribution demand was so overwhelming, we made some mistakes. If you were someone who didn't get your DVD when you needed it, we are so sorry. If you still haven't gotten your DVD, please e-mail Allison Cook at stuff.for.allison@... and we'll resolve it right away. Thanks for your patience.
We've had a huge response from schools and teachers. Thanks so much for all of your enthusiasm for sharing this in schools around the world. We're working with Facing the Future: People and the Planet, a non-profit education organization that provides resources and action opportunities on global issues and sustainability for teachers, students and the public. They're helping us to put together a curriculum for use in classrooms. Stay tuned; we'll have more information on this in upcoming newsletters.
If you know any organizations or individuals who would like to support the Story of Stuff as we move forward-from translating to building communities and supporting actions- (or if you would like to), please contact us or click here to make a donation.
