Duke and Lindy Prepare For Launch Quest

The day is upon us in short order. In less than 24 hours, Duke and I will be departing for leg one and two of our four legged Humanitarian outreach project, Launch Quest. https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/FiscalSponsorship/profile?id=16778

Thanks to generous donors, we were able to raise enough money to cover our airfare to The Western Cape to work with Dreamcatcher South Africa Foundation and the people of Melkhoutfontein on a mural project to help ignite an awakening of important historical and cultural events in the town, and add to their tourism economy. To prepare, we were assigned three scenarios to depict important events on the sides of houses offered up by villagers as our canvas. We will adjust from input once we get there. It will be interesting to see how this develops. You can watch our progress on our blog here.
