Blog Action Day 2008

T - Talk - to your children, your family, your friends, your church - about poverty in your neighbourhoods, your cities, your country, and the world.

A - Act. Donate money, food, clothing, furniture, toys. Volunteer.

K - Knit - sweaters, mittens, toques, socks, gloves, hats...

E - Educate yourself. Read the newspaper, consider the statistics.


A - Assemble. We can't solve this problem on our own. But we can if we work together.

C - Consume less. Eat less. Buy only what you'll use. When you buy new things, donate the old.

T - Talk some more - to your politicians, leaders, aid organizations.

I - Insist that poverty cessation be a priority where you are.

O - Own the problem. Poverty is not THEIR problem. Poverty is OUR problem.

N - Now. If not now, then when?

TAKE ACTION.

No matter what poverty looks like to you, TAKE ACTION AGAINST IT.

We are equipped to SOLVE the problem of global poverty.

TAKE ACTION.
