Why did you curate Construction for Change?
I’m lucky to have friends who are such good people, because they introduce me to amazing organizations like Construction for Change! CfC partners with non-profits around the world, providing them with badly needed infrastructure (think hospitals, schools and roads), which allows the organizations to stay focused on their charitable missions. CfC knows that the charities providing economic, medical and educational support in developing countries have bigger things to worry about than paving their own roads and constructing their own buildings. So CfC does it for them.
