When a child begs for fruit-free Froot Loops hes simply doing what hes been commanded to do clean-your-room style by the marketing nanny writes vanden Heuvel..The FTC in vanden Heuvels conception is more like a police officer set on keeping nannies from abusing their charges. …..Change.org is an online activism platform for social change that raises awareness.about important causes and connects people to opportunities for powerful action..We work with more than 1000 of the largest nonprofits in the world have a team.of hundreds of journalists and organizers that span the globe and empower millions.of people each month to make a difference….Change.org is organized around more than a dozen leading cause-based communities .ranging from gay rights to women s rights to animal welfare.
