sometimes we get to do meaningful things at the day job. last week was one of them. @ Ogilvy, we were given the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of women and children, and families in Africa– by way of designing a support campaign of film, digital, and a gala in NY for the James R Jordan Foundation All to fund a program called Diamonds For Africa… a movement to collect donated gems to finance the building of a hospital, roads ahd programs  in Africa.
