Video of Greg Mortenson, Author of "Three Cups of Tea," Speaking in Bend

Greg Mortenson addresses a group of school children in Bend, Oregon.

I just got back from Summit High School where Greg Mortenson, the author of Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace...One School at a Time, was speaking to a sizable congregation of elementary school-aged kids.

At the event, the organizers also announced the total sum raised during the Pennies for Peace fundraiser in town, which came to $52,729.04.

I also had a chance to sit down with Mortenson, who has dedicated his life to help build schools in Pakistan in the hope of educating children, especially young girls, before his presentation and I will have the text from that chat up on the site tomorrow. So check back.

But in the meantime, here's some footage of Mortenson speaking at Summit High.

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock.
