Speak: Corporate Abuse

I've just signed a card for Jack Straw, produced by Speak, a network of students and young adults who pray and campaign about issues of global injustice. I signed up to something at Greenbelt, received some cards yesterday - I'll take them and put them in the Chapel on campus.

The World's Deepest Bin

I did think that these 'viral' adverts (the piano stairs one is doing exceptionally well on Facebook - I've seen it several times today!) were from a car company - they were so smooth and polished - and yes, there we are Volkswagen, doing some social action work - and having fun whilst at it. I heartily approve of this!

Operation Christmas Child

OK, so I'm very organised this year. Last week I was reminded about Operation Christmas Child, which I always used to to do, but what with being here there and everywhere for the last 2-3 years, haven't done. It's a really nice scheme, and quite a lot of fun - as buying presents for kids always is
The Scheme
You fill a shoe-box with presents for a child from Africa, Eastern Europe or Central Asia (you don't get to choose where the present goes, but do get to choose whether it's for a boy/girl, and what age-group they are in.
It is possible that your box may be re-organised for more equitable distribution, especially if unsuitable items are included in a box, so please included appropriate items and wrap them nicely!

I talked about Portwiture on my Digital Fingerprint blog, and in writing about it for Super Fun Days Out Adrenablog, thought I'd check again to see what I'd been tweeting about - and just thought this was so colourful that I'd put it up! Not sure what the Coke bottles are about - don't like the stuff - even when it's "good for you"!

P.S. In case you're wondering, I chose pair 4: as my specs, should be ready by 17th October!
