Dear Friends,

It’s the morning after the night before here at ClearlySo as we enjoyed our Christmas party last night.

So as things inevitably wind down for 2012 and Christmas comes to the fore, we’ve been researching a social enterprise gift list for those last minute presents.

We also have reports from the East as ClearlySo associate Dan Gregory participates in the Social Investment Forum in China.

And the incredible story of how the humble tea bag is helping communities in South Africa through one social entrepreneur’s passion for change.

The ClearlySo Team

Merry Christmas!
Don’t panic; there is still plenty of time to get your Christmas presents! Boycott the tax evaders and support social enterprise this year.

Apparently Eleanor Roosevelt once said a woman is like a tea bag, because you only know how strong she is when she is put in hot water. Well, here’s another insight into the humble tea bag, which relates to a particular strong woman and a group of women she nurtured towards finding their way out of poverty in South Africa.
ClearlySo Associate Dan Gregory was in Guangzhou in China for a few days in November as part of the British Council’s Skills for Social Entrepreneurs programme. He reports back on an eye opening couple of days whilst speaking at the Social Investment Forum.
In this article originally written for Third Sector Magazine, Rodney Schwartz argues that the government should be encouraging social entrepreneurship rather than social investment through tax breaks: “this is not the time to be creating loopholes for the well-off.

Many economic regulators maintain that consumers hold little sway over big-industry concerns. In his new book ‘Strength in Numbers: The Political Power of Weak Interests’, HBS Professor Gunnar Trumbull shows how groups such as consumers can effect change by forming interest-driven alliances among activists, regulators, and corporations. You can read an excerpt of the book here.
