Stop Changing the Channel, Start Changing the World
I ran across this inspiring little video on advocacy and activism on You Tube. It was produced by Stir Your World, a youth advocacy and activism project of World Vision Australia, a chapter of the Christian relief and development organization. World Vision is best known for it’s child sponsorship program, where contributors from affluent nations are paired with individual children whom their donations help.
That World Vision is engaged in social justice work shows I think that NGOs increasingly recognize the importance of working for social change as well as charity.
Anyway — the video somehow made me feel energized and hopeful. I hope it does the same for you.
