  1. A meaningful and thought-provoking presentation delivered with passion and grace. Just wonderful. Thank you, Flynn, for all you do.

  2. Love the stories and ideas about how we can all make change here–I am particularly moved by learning about the Chilean craftswomen's work, and how much passion and resilience they put into their weavings. Sometimes when I sew I am lucky enough to feel a little bit connected to the worldwide (and historical) tradition of women working with textiles to create garments, functional objects, and art. There is so much love, ingenuity, value and brilliance in this work, and this presentation does a wonderful job elucidating how everyone benefits when we find ways to support and share the work of artisans like the women the speaker met in Chile.

  3. I love the line "we vote with our actions everyday." Very true! I love this talk so much because it explains social entrepreneurship in a way that everyone can understand, and it also inspires one to go out and help.

  4. Great presentation, gracious, kind and moving! As a Kiva volunteer, mentioned in this video, I can see how hours that my team and I put into volunteering create real opportunities for people around the world.
