Today, 15 October, is Blog Action Day where the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters are encouraged to post about the same issue on the same day. This year the theme is Poverty.
The hope is by starting a global discussion we can all help bring about both personal actions and a raised awareness for global poverty action going on (read more about it here).
I decided writing about poverty isn’t enough and, for me, today has to be about taking action because Miss Wyatt’s Poverty post made me recognize I should be doing more. As she says so many of us spend a dollar per day on lollies, chips, soft drink, comics or other non-essential item while large percentage of the World’s population live on less than $1 per day.
So tonight, as a family, we worked through the World Vision Australia’s website and signed up to sponsor a boy from Bangladesh.
If we each work to change one person’s world together we can make a different to the lives of many people.
