consumerism development

Who will you be an Ordinary Hero for?

Next week Tearfund are launching a new campaign called Ordinary Heroes. I’m quite excited about it, as I’ve been involved in some of the early research behind it over the last couple of years.

More to the point, I’m excited about it because it’s the first time I can think of that a major charity has put consumerism and development together in this way. I’ll write more about it after the launch, which I’m going along to on the 16th. Want to come too?
