Livesimply is an initiative launched by the Catholic relief agency, CAFOD, to encourage lifestyles that are simple, sustainable and that show solidarity with the poor. It has been the focus of much of their recent fundraising - asking people to take the 1 per cent challenge, for example, whereby they live on 99 per cent of their income and give the rest away. It was originally intended to come to an end in the spring of 2008, but such is the momentum that it has built up (over 50 organisations such as Pax Christi, the Catholic Women's Network etc have become affiliates, promoting livesimply to their members) it will now continue and this is the first livesimply resource book.
All royalties go to CAFOD for relief and development work.
