I led a group of young girls group who fundraised during each school year to earn money to travel and work at threatened habitat sites around the country for several weeks each summer. Nobelity most generously let these girls show one of their films as a fundraiser, which brought in 150 people and about $1,000 for these girls' work. Christy also came and talked about the work in a most accessible way. Nobelity is a wonderful example of a true grass roots movement - giving credence to the statement that just a few individuals can make a huge difference in the world. Thanks Nobelity for all the good work you do!

I'm the Founder of The Miracle Foundation, a non-profit that revolutionizes the way orphanages are run, funded and managed worldwide, starting in India. Because of that, I've had the opportunity to work hand in hand with the Nobelity Project for more than 5 years. I have been inspired by the stories they tell through film and our organization has benefitted tremendously because they featured us in their documentary, "One Peace at a Time."

I've had the distinct pleasure of getting to know the Founders very well and can personally attest to their hard work (they're some of the hardest working people I know), their ethics and their persistent and successful goal of giving a voice to people who cannot get a platform to tell their own stories.
The Nobelity Project is one of the most powerful mediums I've seen for giving a voice to the voiceless by giving them a platform to tell their story.

I've seen Nobelity documentaries inform school children of complex global issues we face today and give them ways that they can participate in solving these problems. They truly do connect hands, hearts and minds and, through story telling and hard work, inspire the hero in us all.

The Nobelity Project has provided key support to Seva Foudation's work in two ways. A professional video called "Let There Be Sight" about our work in Nepal funded and produced by the Nobelity Project has generated tremendous visibility for our work to prevent blindness and restore sight. The Nobelity Project is also a generous donor to Seva, having provided the seed funding to to build a new eye clinic in a remote Himalayan community in Nepal. Partnerships like this between two like-minded humanitarian organizations demonstrate the power of collaboration towards a common goal. We are grateful for their support and friendship.
