CNN Traveler Article by ABC’s Claire Shipman Recounts a Family Holiday as Volunteers with East Bali Poverty Project

Bali News: Voluntourism in Bali

(7/8/2013)

In August of 2011 Bali Discovery Tours had the privilege of assisting in the travel arrangements for Claire Shipman, her husband Jay Carney and their two children, Hugo And Della.

Claire is well known in the U.S.A. as the Peabody Award-winning senior national correspondent on ABC’s Good Morning America while her husband, Jay Carney, works asBarack Obama’s White House Press secretary.

While in Bali we helped arrange a visit to the East Bali Poverty Project (EBBP) at Ban in North Bali run by David Booth. There, the Carney children enjoyed Indonesian Independence Day with the children of EBPP. 

The Carney children were so inspired by their experience working with the kids of EBPP that they mounted a fund-raising activity back home in Washington, DC that successfully raised enough funds to buy new school uniforms for their Balinese friends.

Claire Shipman has just published a wonderful account of her visit with Hugo and Della to EBPP in CNN Traveler.
