“Charity begins at home,”
… as the saying goes. And in our post Bail-out world it literally does mean this.
This years topic for Blog Action Day is poverty.
Join other bloggers to highlight this problem, to talk about it in a renewed fashion. It is an important issue that every person who can afford to give a little should give a little time to (as well as some money).

Great to know so many people are so keen to do something about this. I plan to do a few pieces about sustainability and poverty in the near future. So please stay tuned.
I think that to truly resolve the problem of poverty implies changing the way that we live. We need to eat and breathe justice – how to implement it in every aspect of our personal, professional and social lives. Imagine if everyone did that!
for my part, i turn to sites like freerice (rice donation), kiva (microfinance), and goodsearch (donation per search), as ways to help alleviate poverty online. i also put up their banners on my blog. :)
