Katz and her daughter, Lulu, to travel to Southeast Asia and write about places you can go where your money directly helps local people earn a living while saving elephants and their fragile environments. It also goes to help kids right here in Brooklyn who live in food deserts. Help them create Hip2B Healthy Markets at school, where every fresh snack is only 50 cents to lure classmates away from unhealthy junk food at nearby bodegas.
