Last week Mr. Patty's Central Impact group, aided by Karen Kelly (a terrific and supportive parent/activist), put on a great forum with representatives of CARE INTERNATIONAL as guest speakers. I was moved by the message of improving the lives of people in developing countries through market principles and micorfinancing. I did a little research and found a wonderful non-profit group that is putting market principles to work and improving lives through entrepreneurship and social enterprise. I bought one of their products and now I am on fire to do what I can to support this group and the work they do. They are VERY committed to transparency and it you visit their site you will see a plethora of disclosures, tax forms, and business plans. Please visit IndegoAfrica.org and take a look. If you are moved to buy anything, I dont think you will be disappointed...
