THE THIRD WAVE is a road map for volunteering. In a world of increasing natural and man-made disasters, volunteers are needed… no experience required.
A resident of Colorado's western slope outside Telluride, Bruce French works professionally as a personal chef to popular rock bands such as Pearl Jam on world tours. When not on the road, the avid outdoorsman enjoys climbing, mountaineering and Kayaking near his yurt home in the San Juan Mountains.
While sailing around the world in the mid '90s, he made a stopover in Sri Lanka. Exploring the island on an old motorcycle, he was moved by the island's rich culture and raw natural beauty, but mostly by the kindness and hospitality of the locals. It was that kind hospitality that fueled his return to volunteer after the tsunami tragedy. In 2005 He received a Humanitarian Award by the Sri Lanka Government for his services to the victims of the Tsunami Disaster.
A native of Bowral, NSW Australia, Donald Thomas Paterson joined the Australian Army Reserve at age 17 and then six months later, the Australian Army.
