"I am committed to the idea that every person deserves a chance.  For those who have lost their home or been displaced, having access to secure and reliable shelter is the first step in rebuilding their lives.  Cardborigami has pioneered an innovative method to design and deploy emergency shelters that are sustainable, cost-effective, and easily transported.  I am inspired by the organization, which creates a new chance for someone in need with each shelter.
