Live 8 – Make Poverty History

Posted by

I am watching CFCF’s staggering coverage of the Live 8 concert. This is not a political Blog. This is personal.
I went to the Make Poverty History website and signed the letters. They’re not asking for money. They’re asking for your name.
This is the email I got back. Please take action now. Let’s end this now.
“Dear Friend,
Today, I became part of an unprecedented global call to action to end poverty: Make Poverty History
Right now, there is active campaigning in over 50 countries around the three core demands: More and Better Aid, Make Trade Fair, and Cancel the Debt. In Canada, we’re also campaigning to End Child Poverty in Canada.

There is no time to lose. It doesn’t matter who or where you are, your voice is critical to the success of this campaign. This is a rare chance to join me and thousands of others across the planet to once and for all make poverty history.
