SHOW NOTES

Summary –

Andrew Purdie sits with one of Australia’s national living treasures, the Reverend Tim Costello, who has been a driving force in public and community service for decades and his philanthropic efforts have inspired a generation. Andrew explores Reverend Tim’s life growing up, his venture into practicing law and eventually becoming an advocate for social justice issues – particularly social housing, gambling, ethics advocate, and especially his biggest role as CEO of World Vision Australia. Reverend Tim sheds light on how his inexperience stepping into his CEO role at World Vision Australia took a true leap of faith, however it in return gave him practical, real life experience to continue his journey as a philanthropic leader in Australia. Andrew discusses with Reverend Tim donor confusion and how listeners can make more informed decisions on giving,  his current involvement in social justice issues nationally and internationally, and his main foundation that he is involved in with Micah Australia.
