Ray of Hope

On August 8th we lost a pioneer in Sustainability and a contributor to the Anthology, Child Honouring: How To Turn This World Around. Ray C. Anderson was founder and chairman of Interface Inc., one of the world's largest manufacturers of modular carpet for commercial and residential applications and a leading producer of commercial broadloom and commercial fabrics. He was known for his leadership on industrial ecology and sustainability. 

On August 29th at a memorial service in La Grange, Georgia, Raffi sang his tribute song, "Ray of Hope" - this recording is now downloadable from our website. A video of the memorial service can be viewed on the blog page Interface has created in memory of  Ray Anderson.

Raffi News

This Summer Raffi took his first extended holiday in decades. He stayed put, enjoying the wonderful things our community has to offer, meeting people at the Saturday Market, eating yummy organic farm fresh food, and gardening.

 

Raffi has been writing & recording again, songs of tribute to the recently departed Ray Anderson and Jack Layton. His Child Honouring advocacy has moved the Centre into partnering with a New Brunswick initiative at forming a children's environmental bill of rights. On twitter, Raffi urges the occupywallstreet people people to be disciplined, peaceful and positive.
