Blog Action Day: Poverty – It's a Wrap!

Okay, now I’m tired.

so we started this 24 hours ago (well, just the blogging part) with the hope to increase awareness about poverty, outline some of the ways United Way is trying to fight it and share with you some other Central Texans perspectives and real world local successes.

We hope that 24 hours later you are just a little bit more informed about what poverty is, how easy it is for anyone to drop into poverty, what some of the keys are to escaping and also that you are inspired to do something about alleviating poverty and financial hardship in our community.

We urge you to get involved, whether it’s by

  • Giving (always takes money, but the payoff both personally and as a community is huge)
  • Advocating, find your voice, speak out, use it
  • Volunteering, mentoring a student to help reduce the drop out rate or sign up for one of our Hands On Central Texas projects!
That’s me after being up for 42 hours straight & blogging for 24 hours!

Thanks for reading, listening, watching and supporting us through this crazy day.
Be a part of the change. Live United! Now, I’m off to bed…finally!

Si Se Puede!

  2. Just wanted to say I’m really proud of everything you’re doing.
    Here is the video I did for the young lions competition in hopes of encouraging people to add their names and help Oxfam by joining the movement to encourage world leaders to vote for change at the summit in Copenhagen in December.
    Hope you enjoy!
