Such a worthwhile auction, Matt! I'd love to spend time doing service in South America. I've been wanting to work at an orphanage in Ecuador for a long time. Best of luck to Kay :D :D

The Abbey Road book seems familiar for some reason and I wonder if I read about it a few months ago. I've been trying to find out about organizations that I could work with or volunteer with to travel to countries and help the people there but have been overwhelmed with all that's available and haven't heard of the World Race before. It sounds like a neat mission. I'll have to look into it. I wonder what will Kay be doing in all of these places...will she know beforehand or does it vary from place to place, where she'll find out her tasks as she arrives?
