On Saturday, June 21, people all over the world will go to wounded places they care about, share their stories and experiences, get to know the place as it is now, and make the RadJoy Bird out of materials they find on site. In this video, made by Wayne Turner, Di Koch tells about the beauty she and members of Alive Cafe in Muizenberg, South Africa, near Cape Town, made for a wounded beach on Global Earth Exchange 2013. Click here to sign up for this year's Global Earth Exchange on June 21. Join Di and others around the world to make beauty for a place you care about. Free organic cotton t-shirts for everyone who signs up before June 1!
