Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to Chine McDonald about how her sacred values of altruism and kindness are more important, and evident, than ever. 13/05/202
Chine McDonald is the former media and PR lead and now head of community fundraising and public engagement for Christian Aid, one of the world’s largest and best known non profit organisations. She was our guest on episode #25 of The Sacred.
In this episode Chine talks about how we have more in common than what divides us and how kindness becomes central in times of crises. This episode also features a short voice memo sent in by Andrew about using our lives as a means to others’ ends.
We would love to hear how you are processing this season, if this crisis has crystallised or even changed what you hold sacred, and what it might tell us about our collective sacred values. You can send us your thoughts in a voice note to 07778160052 or you can email us at email@example.com. Please keep your responses to under a minute and a half if you can.
