Join Blog Action Day 2008 – Blog About Poverty on October 15

I'm in. Are you in?

I found this compelling call-to-action posted on DevLounge featuring Blog Action Day 2008.  BDA is an annual nonprofit event that aims to unite the world’s bloggers, podcasters and videocasters, to post about the same issue on the same day. This year’s focus is the global issue of poverty. The aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.

Global issues like poverty are extremely complex. There is no simple, clear answer. By asking thousands of different people to give their viewpoints and opinions, Blog Action Day creates an extraordinary lens through which to view these issues. Each blogger brings their own perspective and ideas. Each blogger posts relating to their own blog topic. And each blogger engages their audience differently.

Visit the BDA website to learn about the three ways you can get involoved:
