Humanitarian Charity NewThing.net in Belarus

. I lead the humanitarian charity NewThing.net in Belarus. The work is especially interesting and important now, in the context of the Ukraine conflict.  I’ll bring a fun gift for each attendee. (I’ve written a couple novels, one winning a prize for humor, and I’ve performed in amateur theatrical comedies for decades, so my talk will be lively!) Our work is 100% volunteer and humanitarian, completely non-political and non-religious; and I never ask for money from a Rotary Club.
