Make Change

Pete: Well, let me ask you a question. Am I the Ultimate Fighting Champion? 
Monica: Well, no. But... 
Pete: Well, I'm not gonna stop until I'm the Ultimate Fighting Champion. 
Monica: That guy stood on your neck until you passed out! 
Pete: Let me tell you a story. When I set out to create Moss 865, do you think it just happened overnight? No. There was Moss 1, that burnt down my Dad's garage, there was Moss 2 that would only schedule appointments in January, and 862 others that I learned from, just like I learned from this fight, never to let a guy stand on my neck.

Make Change is a new organisation that seeks nothing less than "a world where everyone is inspired and empowered to take action and affect change on issues which touch them, their communities and the wider world."

They are starting with an event at the Deptford Lounge, where they will be hosting a Day of Creative Action, which so-far is slated to include activities like badge making, face-painting, 'poetry activism' and 'jewellery making / learning about international development'.

The event takes place on September 29th, click here to get involved.

"effecting" change might be a better aim than simply "affecting" it...

Sounds rather like a lot of marshmallow and hot air - but I will suspend my judgment until I see whether they (or others whom they have helped) can get The Walpole Listed, the container moved from Meze Mangal, and etc., etc. - name the campaign of your choice

Is this an advert, or an opportunity to take a dig at something you don't like the sound of?

It is a completely vague about who is organising it actually. Is it fair to assume it's the Taxpayers' Alliance and affiliates?
Lou, are you by chance involved with this badge-making and poetry activism?

I'd like a world where people think before they write, choose the correct words and then spell them correctly.
