Blog Action Day: Poverty (October 15, 2008)

If you happen to be a regular blogger, I am confident you have already heard through the virtual grapevine that October 15th is Blog Action Day. Bloggers everywhere will unite (from sports blogs and tech blogs, to entertainment and cooking blogs) and publish posts on October 15th that discuss poverty in some way.

The BIG IDEA is that by all bloggers posting on the same day, we as the social media, can change the conversation that day, to raise awareness, start a global discussion about global and local poverty issues, and hopefully, inspire people to action.

What Can I Do?

Well, the easiest thing you can do if you have a blog is to write something about poverty that is relative to your unique audience. If you have a personal blog, you can document about poverty issues in your own life and how you dealt with them, or someone else close to you. If you have a celebrity blog, you can blog about celebrity charity work (think Wyclef Jean!)

If you don’t happen to have a blog, you can just look for a good blog about poverty that speaks to you, and share it with your family, friends and colleagues. Spreading the word is critical to raising awareness and continuing the global discussion on poverty issues.

My 2 pesos: My definition of poverty: having to choose between medicine and food. What is your definition?
