I’m distraught. I missed Blog Action day. And all the more distressing is that the theme is something absolutely close to my heart: Poverty.
In lieu, here are some finds on blogs whose authors are more organized than I, who wrote excellent posts on the topic.
The UK Embassy in Russia blogs about how the UK foreign office is partnering with Russia on development initiatives.
Here’s a funny one for people who torrent stuff: Donate your savings. Interweb Robin Hood 🙂
Moritherapy found a great video from last years day against poverty.
and a blogger expat in the Caribbean has this little project going on.
And Me? Here’s what I’m doing. You likely know about the vigil at Vancouver City Hall as part of Homelessness Action Week. If I’m really brave (and I hope to be) and if I can find a warm sleeping bag (HINT HINT) for the night, I’m going to try to sleep outside overnight on Friday with the people observing the vigil. If I can’t get it together or screw up my courage enough, then for sure I will be on the steps of city hall on Saturday at 1pm for the STAND. Local Readers – join me!
