He is a passionate supporter of a commercial-free childhood. In 2006, he was awarded the Fred Rogers Integrity Award for this work. In 2010, Raffi founded the Centre for Child Honouring on Salt Spring Island, BC, a global movement that views honouring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking cultures. In 2013, he wrote Lightweb Darkweb: Three Reasons to Reform Social Media Before It Re-Forms Us.
