Gwenn & Roan, Sister & Brother Humanitarians Jan. 22, 2010
In a lively interview, sibling teen humanitarians, Gwenn and Roan Gideon from Rhinebeck, discuss their recent projects, which have helped thousands in developing countries. They describe how they organized and implemented fundraisers to raise awareness of human rights abuses around the world and to raise money for humanitarian efforts. Coming from a theatrical family, Gwenn created her own theatrical company, Act to Act, which has produced summer theatrical productions with proceeds supporting a school in Ethiopia and relief efforts in Darfur. Roan helps his sister in the theatrical world but has also organized his own humanitarian project: a soccer tournament fundraiser involving several schools in the area to support a hospital in Ethiopia.
