From the Publisher
Every copy of this book that is bought helps feed hungry children! All of the authors royalties from Change Activist, and an additional royalty from the publisher, go to Magic Breakfast a child poverty charitable project founded by the author. Whilst writing Change Activist, Carmel discovered that for a staggering 1 in 4 inner city London schoolchildren, the only proper hot meal they received was at school. Many children arrive at school in the morning without having had anything to eat, and too hungry to learn. True to the Change Activist message, Carmel decided to do something about this, and founded Magic Breakfast with the aim of delivering nutritious breakfasts to primary schools, so that any child who otherwise would arrive hungry, can be fed (whether or not they can afford to pay for the breakfast). Now operating in three London boroughs, and hoping to expand rapidly in 2004, Magic Breakfast is delivery bagels and cereals to primary schools in need, with the support of Bagel Factory and Pearson. By buying a copy of Change Activist, you will be directly feeding hungry children and giving them the chance of a decent start in life.Please encourage friends and family to also buy a copy of Change Activist it will feed their mind and feed a child too. Thanks for your support in ending child poverty!
