Reid's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Reid's story

I grew up in a small mid-western town, raised on "salt of the earth" values of fairness, honesty, integrity, and compassion. My father taught me the value of hard work and persistence. When I was 19 I spent 10 months in school in Germany and Sweden, expanding my world view, cultural horizons, and forever changing my social perspectives. I learned that travel is fatal to bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and ethnocentrism. I continued to travel through much of my twenties and into my thirties. After a few fits and starts in other professions, I found my true calling when I was hired to be a European tour guide by Rick Steves in 1996. In 2005 I launched Imprint Tours with the goal of introducing Americans to non-European cultures and destinations.
