 Arese's husband

PostSubject: Arese's husband   Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:40 am

Arese said she grew up during Vietnam War protests and remembers a 1974 explosion at an Italian plant that produced Agent Orange. In 1997 she visited Vietnam as a tourist and encountered disabled young people who collected aluminum cans and fabricated picture frames out of them to sell for school money. Arese told the youngsters to send her 50 of the frames and she would try to sell them in Pacific Palisades. They ended up shipping 300, causing her to scramble to find buyers for them all. But she did, and she sent the $7,100 she raised to the disabled youths. They kept $1,775 of that for their own education and sent the rest to a remote village in northern Vietnam to pay for schooling for 10 Hmong orphans. Their generosity stunned Arese, prompting her to create the nonprofit Spiral Foundation sparking her continuing focus on Vietnam.

Arese's husband, sound editor James Simcik, and their two sons, Nicholas and Martino, are supportive of her work. Nicholas, 27, a doctoral candidate focusing on migration and human rights, will travel with her to Vietnam this time. Martino, 22, is an undergraduate studying sociology and conflict resolution through sports. "Any kind of war always creates damages that go far beyond where the war happened," Marichia Arese said. "We should not count only on large institutions making a change. Change is possible if you commit to a good idea."
