It is once again Blog Action Day. This year's topic is poverty.
This year's topic was announced in August, and since then I've been trying to come up with my contribution. Unfortunately, I can't think of a nice, pithy story that'll go along with this topic (last year it was easy).
So, all I can do is call attention to Blog Action Day, and post a couple links:
Stand Against Poverty
Our Day to End Poverty
Make Poverty History
...and other resources here
