Kham Aid Foundation is looking for people to participate in a 10-day supported bike tour in eastern Tibet, to raise funds for our health programs.

We're also seeking people to join a team of do-it-yourselfers to renovate the living quarters of doctors and teachers in a remote rural township.

For more info, please see www.khamaid.org

Hey Pam! I love it when people like you take the initiative to go out, as an unpaid staffer, and help those who are less fortunate.

I checked out your website and I have nothing but great respect for you and your cause .

I tell you what, I canīt make the bike ride or the flight to the rural township to help with renovations, but when Travelpunk.com getīs humongous weīll "throw a bone" your way in support of your valiant efforts to make a difference in the world .

And, your a 4th degree black belt ?! Nice!

Actually I think they are kind of stiff on letting people into Tibet right now because of all the human rights attention it received a few years back...thats what I have heard anyhow.
