Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty

Today is a day when bloggers around the world say something about poverty in an attempt to raise awareness and action around the world. I can't write much just now, so here's what's on my mind at the moment:

My main concern is the consequences of the credit crunch on the poorest of the world. If rich governments are struggling and prioritising their own needs, where does that leave the poor. We have to keep donating, campaigning and allocating the aid budgets.

If you're sitting at a computer and want to do something, why not click on the The Hunger Site - donate without it costing you anything. If you would like to something more committed, then check out the latest campaigns on the TEAR Fund website.
