October 15 – Blog Action Day Fights Poverty

It is that time of the year again – Blog Action Day. This year over 11,000 blogs will band together over a 48 hours period to blog about poverty, the effect it has had on them, on others, and ways that we, as people, entrepreneurs, and bloggers can work to help fight it.

For my post today, I wanted to have something witty, catchy, inspirational, or motivational to share with you all as a great call to action. Instead, I want to point out some sites that you all can utilize to help fight poverty today, tomorrow, this month, and the rest of the year. If enough people come together, than we can make a difference and put an end to poverty.

    Thanks for writing about what you can do to alleviate poverty! Don’t forget about Muhammad Yunus and his book “banking for the poor.” He tells the story of Microfinance and how simple things like a small loan can move a family out of poverty. At the Grameen Foundation we carry on the work of Muhammad Yunus by supporting microfinance institutions around the world. To learn more you can visit our website or read about microfinance.
