After 2007’s Blog Action Day about the environment, the countdown has begun for 2008’s Blog Action Day about poverty.
In the organizers’ words: “Poverty is not only a pressing issue, it is a complex one. It is also easy to think that there isn’t much an individual can do. Fortunately this isn’t the case at all. With activities ranging from advocacy and professional contribution to charity and financing, there is in fact many ways that we can act.” Check out the Blog Action Day 2008 Post Ideas.
