Cruising Attitude World Tour: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Elyse Pasquale (AKA Foodie International) took this picture of students holding my book, Cruising Attitude, at  Fresh and Green Academy, a school for impoverished children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

“The Ethiopian Cabin Crew Association came out yesterday and made a donation of food, supplies and money,” reports Elyse.  She’s volunteering at the school this week.

On a life-changing trip to Fresh and Green Academy in 2008, the school was in transition and dangerously low on funding. Trish Hack-Rubinstein, a flight attendant for a major US carrier, saw the need for her help and expertise. Upon returning to the United States, she helped found Friends of Fresh and Green, Inc. As President and co-founder, Trish travels to the Academy several times a year and is the cornerstone of the organization. Thanks to her efforts, the school and Mothers’ Cooperative continue to thrive.
