On October 15th bloggers are being encouraged to publish posts that discuss poverty in some way. This is an initiative of Blog Action Day, for the second year running. The objective: by all posting on the same day we aim to change the conversation that day, to raise awareness, start a global discussion and add momentum to an important cause, says the website. It asks bloggers to publish at least one post, video or podcast about poverty on October 15th. Over 8000 blogs (including the Top 100 blogs) have already registered.
The site offers resources on poverty related issues, ideas on what to do about poverty right now, tips on what to write about and what one person can do.
So here’s to a worthy cause – however small our contribution may be.
