Maureen Orth (Colombia 1965-67) will be on tomorrow’s NBC’s Today Show–Wednesday, Feb. 8– supposedly in the 8:30 half hour with videos from China made for www.peacecorpspostcards.com. She will also be on Morning Joe either Thursday or Friday.www.peacecorpspostcards.com
Maureen launched, with her friend Susn Koch this interactive website: www.PeaceCorpsPostcards.com shortly after the 50th celebrations to celebrate the Peace Corps 50th anniversary, and to share the stories of volunteers across the globe. Susan, an award winning filmmaker, and Maureen has produced a series of video postcards that feature PCVs and RPCVs.
With assistance from American Express and the Bank of America there is a website which allows anyone in the Peace Corps community to post his or her story, picture or blog.
Check out these video postcards at www.peacecorpspostcards.com
And watch the Today Show tomorrow morning.
Once again, an RPCV is proving she can get more PR for the Peace Corps than the Peace Corps.gov can get for their Volunteers.
