On October 15, 2008 thousands of bloggers across the globe will take to their keyboards and join in an online revolution: to open up a global dialogue about poverty. There is not one of us who has not witnessed or been touched by poverty in some way. This is Blog Action Day 2008.
This is your change to speak on this important issue, raise awareness and start a discussion through your blog. Writers, photographers, podcasters and videographers! This is your call to action.
What Can One Person Do? Poverty is not only a pressing issue, it is a complex one. It’s easy to think that there isn’t much an individual can do. Fortunately this isn’t the case at all. With activities ranging from advocacy and professional contribution to charity and financing, there is in fact many ways that we can act.
You can find a range of resources about poverty, about what the average person can do as well as dozens of post suggestions and ideas in their Resources section.
