With one simple idea and some self-printed coupons, I was able to turn a stressful day of scrambling for chocolate and coins into something to actually look forward to: a day of sharing, learning and giving back… true to the spirit of NoMoreMovies… and Oxfam.
Not long after our trip to Peru, I stumbled upon music by Xavier Rudd. His music, lyrics and personality immediately struck a chord with me. Xavier is not only a unique Australian singer-songwriter but also an activist. Fun fact for the ladies: in 2008 PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) named him sexiest Australian male vegetarian.
Rudd’s music videos are a tribute to traveling, humanity and nature. His latest album, Nanna, was recorded with the band The United Nations, but he can be an amazing one-man band of his own. I’ll definitely post more of him in the coming weeks and months. He has a diverse repertoire so I never get tired of him. For now, let’s start with one of his most upbeat and accessible song: Come People.
