"Meeting Robin was one of the best decisions of my life. She inspired us with her story of starting Pencils for Kids, and on making a difference in one of the poorest economies in the world: Niger. Robin kindly offered to help the NGO that I support, and within months, we were collaborating with each other to successfully launch a new social program in Niger! I've learned insights from Robin on international development that I could not have gained from any textbooks. Thank you Robin, and thank you Time Auction!"

"Dan is a really inspiring person, who was actively interested in the work we were both doing. I hope he had at least half as good at time as we did."
