charter for compassion

A week or so ago, I was approached by Nathalie Swainston, a friend and gun digital strategist for Ogilvy PR to take part in the Charter for Compassion. Not a wooly concept, just simply to answer this:

'What does compassion mean to you?'.

Part of a global campaign asking people around the world the same question involving people famous for being outspoken about peace, like Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama - the campaign asks you to do a simple thing: Go here and affirm the Charter for Compassion to let others know how you feel the world should be.

You may recognise other foodie faces including Neil Perry and Adriano Zumbo who were generous enough to give their time to champion a cause we often forget about.
