Tomorrow is Blog Action Day. Its purpose is to highlight the problem and issue of poverty around the world. A Blog Action Day, at http://blogactionday.org, has been set up to help track everyone who says they’re going to participate in this action.
I’ve decided not only to participate, but I’m going to write a different post for each blog tomorrow, which is the 15th, in case you’re reading this from elsewhere. One might think this would be a hard topic to address, but I’ve seen poverty, even if I can’t honestly say it’s in my personal background. But some family members have had to deal with this, and I was actually personally touched by it in my life, so I’ll have my say, and hopefully it’ll help make a difference in some way.
For an idea of what your page might look like, though I’m certainly not going to this kind of extreme, check out this post. By the way, you can also donate money to the cause or help promote it in other ways also. Just click on that first link above.
Why not take a stand and have a say? I hope all of you participate in some way.
