Philip Berber is co-founder with his wife Donna of The Glimmer of Hope Foundation, which was recently ranked as the 6th most effective philanthropy in the world. Philip encourages us to act locally to impact globally; ask the rural poor of the world what they need, and then take steps to help them help themselves. As an Irishman living here in Austin, we can't help but consider Philip as our very own Bono. (No wonder he's so good up on the Austin City Limits stage.) glimmerofhope.org About TEDx, x=independently organize event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self- organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
