Today is Blog Action Day 2008 and this year it’s time to take action against poverty. What is poverty? Poverty is the state of having little or no money and few or no material possessions. It goes without saying that living in such a state is not easy. If you though your life was hard, think again. You’ve probably heard about poverty overseas in places like Africa but poverty exists everywhere. Don’t believe me? Go visit a major city and take a look around – outside the shiny downtown part. If we ever want to accomplish the idea of world peace, taking care of poverty would be a good place to start.
So why not go volunteer your time? There’s plenty of ways to get involved, and some of them take only minutes. Checking out the Blog Action Day site is a good place to start. You can also get the facts about poverty here along with other resources.
