Please become a friend of Vic and Barby and our developing world (odw) on Facebook so we can keep current with you.

There are always many exciting things happening! Check us out on Facebook:

Hope and awareness to carry on from last year!

New in our lexicon: Occupy and 99%

Never before has the middle class realized it has more in common with the poor than now, more in contrast with the 1%.

Never before have the banks closed (our San Jose B of A, too) when Occupy people came!

First the media ignored, then it ridiculed, now it´s in the news daily. And on the Daily Show! And will inform the elections and more!

A busy year for odw!

Lots of potlucks and international handcraft sales

We are so grateful to all who have contributed to odw, to all of our wonderful volunteers! Without all of you we could not keep on keeping on.
