Recipe for breaking the cycle of poverty, as I saw it

By in another witty life lesson., life., World Vision.

I don’t much follow recipes. It’s how come my brownies always turn out extra chocolatey, my 12-muffin batch into 17 , and my spaghetti sauce hints at cinnamon. I save a lot of recipes though. I recently took 14 photos of recipes from a single cooking magazine on a friend’s coffee table. As if I […]

Our part in the Kony 2012 narrative

By in convictions., marketing., social justice., social media., thoughts on humanitarian aid.

With the heaps of digital hoopla the Kony 2012 video campaign has received in the last couple of weeks, you might think I’ve been passionately tweeting myself into the conversation, engaging in small, but very serious, talk at the office about the video, spending a disproportionate amount of time rallying with my fellow social media […]

Notes from !deation

By in another witty life lesson., community., marketing., networking., social justice., social media., technology.

By my second sentence of writing Things I’ve learned from !ideation, I knew that I was going to have to separate out this post from that post. Or the first post would have way too long. So if you’re wanting notes, here’s my notes. If you’re wanting thoughts, then check out the other post. ROB […]

“Cool” ways to help earthquake-weary countries

By in social justice., something new.

With last month’s 7.0- magnitude earthquake in Haiti, last week’s small quake in Japan and Saturday’s 8.8-magnitude earthquake in Chile, it’s got me thinking… what’s happening in the world? If you’re at all a little bit like me, there is an immediate feeling of despair and hopelessness when I watch the news, or read the […]

My “response” to post-quake stricken Haiti

By in christianity., something new.

I woke up sick this morning, sore throat, runny nose and all. For medicine, I’ve been drinking hot tea all day. Hot Starbucks tea. And as I sit here, sipping Starbucks, working from home on a number of tasks, I’m reminded of the estimated 3 million people in Haiti that are affected by the recent […]
