Blog Action Day: fight poverty with World Vision

Today is Blog Action Day, an annual event in which bloggers of all stripes are called to post commentary on a single topic. This year’s topic is poverty. In my work with churches and youth groups, the anti-poverty organization I’ve interacted with the most is World Vision. Through a church youth group, I’ve participated in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine program to help raise funds to fight poverty, and our group has also sponsored a child through World Vision. It isn’t much. It isn’t enough. But it is something.

Maybe you already support an anti-poverty cause. If so, please continue to support it. If not, I hope you’ll consider supporting World Vision. Here’s a promo video with some facts about global poverty that may open your eyes.
