Continuing our tradition of exhibiting gratitude one day of the week (I can assure you that we're grateful more often that once per week). We have SO much to be appreciative of, but in the interest of keeping this going weekly, we'll stick to two ThankBacks this week:
Shelley True and Lianne Wand
Shelley and Lianne of TrueDotDesign are the best. Their marketing expertise is seemingly infinite and these women just get us. Shelley and Lianne have been so helpful in teaching us how to spread the word even more effectively. They are committed to helping us look as good as we feel (because we're worth it). We can't express how thankful we are that these two incredibly intelligent and talented individuals are willing to help us improve access to safe sanitation at schools that need it most!
Muk and Sunil Ghale
These brothers are the guys to know in the Kathmandu. Their rest-bar, Phat Kath (a high-quality Kathmandu pun) is one of Kathmandu's hidden treasures. Muk and Sunil were infinitely supportive of us during our time in Nepal in 2012/2013, and we can't wait to see them again in June. Driving out to our pilot project on the back of Muk's red Royal Enfield motorcycle, instead of taking the local bus for the millionth time was a welcome and exciting treat. Muk and Sunil helped us build our first toilet, and without Muk's extensive construction experience, we couldn't have been successful. Anyone thinking of traveling to Kathmandu would be foolish not to make Phat Kath one of their first stops, where Muk and Sunil can provide advice on anything from the best trekking routes to a trip to their BEAUTIFUL hometown of Manang.
