I got the same e-mail and share your concerns about not having a fuller explanation. More importantly, harnessing consumerism as a development strategy is short-sighted--in my opinion. Philanthropy is about long-term relationships with great causes that bring about mutual transformation in the life of the donor and in the mission of the charity. Shopping can't accomplish that.


Thanks, Matthew. This is what I enjoy about blogging. We get a chance to talk to, about, and back to, the prevailing consumer ideology.
