Blog Action Day -Poverty-October 15, 2008
What can you do?
What can I do?
What can we do?
Most of us can’t write a check to feed thousands of people.
But we can each do something to help.
Here are some of my ideas:
–Volunteer at a food bank, homeless shelter, senior center, anywhere poor people are served.
–If you have any canned goods, or any other food, left over at the end of the month,
donate it to a food bank.
–Put a face to poverty. It’s easy to talk about “poor people,” and become overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of people who are poor. Get to know one poor person, and listen to his/her story. You’ll be amazed.
–Talk about poverty, write about poverty, speak out about how to eradicate poverty.
