Message from an OMF Volunteer

Ben Howell, one of our most dedicated volunteers, recently took the time to record a video message to share with the OMF community. Ben is OMF’s liaison/correspondent on the Phoenix Rising forum, and was also instrumental in setting up the bitcoin donation program that allowed us to receive a $5 million donation from the Pineapple Fund. In this video, he talks about why he chooses to volunteer with OMF, and the progress he’s witnessed over the past few years.

We’d like to thank Ben for all of the hard work he does on behalf of OMF and for inspiring us with his perseverance.
