In the past week I had the privilege of attending two fundraising and awareness raising dinners for Amnesty International. Both events were a reminder of the famous quote from Margaret Mead to “Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Both annual events were organized by a small core group of about 10 Amnesty members, but each year they extend their invitation to their local communities and it is amazing to see what a response they get!
