Hey -
our friend Nickdemus is doing some work with low-income communities in Agato, Ecuador, installing rocket stoves and at least one mass heater for purifying water and heating local buildings. He prefers not to bill his travel to the locals, so if you want to support that kind of work, please visit his fundraising site at http://www.indiegogo.com/nickdemus.

He's a crazy South African character who has been very helpful to us and other friends in the Portland area.

A rocket mass heater heats your home with one tenth the wood of a conventional wood stove
