IT'S THE WORLD BLOG ACTION DAY AGAINST POVERTY 2008 AT 15TH OCTOBER...........SO HERE ARE SOME GREAT IDEAS FOT IT ............
Do not overeat on that day.
Save electricity on that day and contribute the equivalent savings to a local charity
. Donate that grocery money to a local food bank.
Be homeless for a day/night.
Stop putting off adopting a child through an organization like Compassion International (or adopt another one).
Get a group together to go door-to-door collecting canned foods for your local soup kitchen/shelter.
Take a homeless person to dinner and actually sit/talk with him.
Stop being lazy. Find a way to do your job better so that you can save an hour a day, or be that much more productive.
Stop buying junk to make yourself look pretty and donate it to homeless people and hungry people.
Make flyers to stick in the local library.
If you have a musical instrument you no longer use, donate to the still-struggling musicians and students
Find a gripping picture or video having to do with poverty and publish it on the Web.
Stop drinking Coke and bottled water for a day and save on plastic. Will save a lot of plastic if each of us does it for only one day.
Share your skill or knowledge, so they can improve their knowledge to increase their life/prosperity.
Visit an orphanage.
Stop being lazy.
Give comfort to the poor
Invite friends to watch documentaries how poverty destroyed ones life,family and their future.
Do not waste water on that day.
Express your love and compassion for one street child by having an enrollment conversation with her. http://www.compassion.com
Ask your child to share her food with the child of your maid on that day.
Make a list of five items you haven’t used for long and have no plans to use them in future either. And distribute them among local poors with all humility.
