Teresa Heinz Kerry, chair of the Heinz Family Philanthropies, is poised to kick off the annual Women’s Health & Environment Conference in Pittsburgh, PA April 20. I caught up with her on her blogtour to ask her opinion on the way women can use their big green purse to protect the planet. DM: How important […]
How can we really make our money matter? One way is to focus our spending so that its power can be felt. That’s what the Big Green Purse "One in a Million" campaign is all about.
