Stop Poverty Now Day, December 3, 2008
"Stop Poverty Now" Day is a Facebook event which will raise funds and awareness for the work that The Grameen Foundation does. For a $10 donation per pixel on this page at StopPovertyNow.org, you can chose one pixel or many, change your choice or choices from b&w to color, upload a photo and add a message.
The Grameen Foundation does incredible work. Christy hosted a book salon that featured the founder Muhammad Yunus, and his book Creating a World Without Poverty. Read it, get inspired and take action. I know I did. The action will be shared here at Oxdown.
From the Facebook event page;
The numbers of people in extreme poverty are at a staggering crisis level:
? One billion people live on less than $1 a day.
? One in five people live without adequate water or food.
? 26,000 children die each day from preventable causes.
The situation calls for *global* action to highlight poverty’s severity and urgency. Each of us can play a part to make a collective meaningful difference.
