Nelson, may you rest in peace brother

I had a chat with the kids tonight about the passing of Nelson Mandela and like whenever Miss E hears about someone dying she gets very sad. I had to remind her that Nelson is now in the best place ever and he is reunited with Jesus.

Nelson Mandela was a man who inspired a generation and showed us that average and ordinary people can make a difference. It won't always be easy and it won't always be fun but it will be worth it.

I love that quote above from Nelson, there are so many I could have chosen as he spoke such sense during his 95 years here on earth but this one sits really well with me. You'll know that I am a supporter of the ONE Campaign and I think they embody this - they have vision and they take action and one day we really will see the end to extreme poverty, I feel sure of it.

I've added in a clip of Nelson speaking in Britain back in 2005 as part of the Make Poverty History campaign and I think it is important to acknowledge there has been progress but there is still so much further to go.

I'd urge you to visit ONE and to sign up to offer your support and voice in the fight against extreme poverty.  You don't have to give any money and you don't have to do anything you don't want to. Every small action makes a difference - 1 signature on a petition, 1 tweet, 1 share on Facebook, 1 letter to an MP or one conversation with your coffee group - we all have different ways and we can all help.  But please add your email so ONE can keep you up to date with what is going on and what needs our most urgent support.

Thanks for your time, Mich x
