Get Involved in Blog Action Day 2008

I am pleased to announce that I have signed up to participate in Blog Action Day 2008 which falls on October 15. It’s truly exciting to be part of something so big. Blog Action Day is an annual event where bloggers agree to write about one issue on the same day to increase knowledge and awareness of a particular social issue.

Almost 2500 blogs have registered to participate so far to raise awareness about this year’s issue of poverty. Here are some ways that you can get involved.

Write.

Register your blog to write a post about poverty on October 15.

Donate.

There are numerous organizations that work to reduce poverty. You can give individually through microloans via Kiva and Global Giving. There are several organizations that work on a broader level to reduce poverty. The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is the official Blog Action Day Charity. Here are some other good organizations that work in poverty reduction.
