Blog Action Day 08

It's Blog Action Day 08 on October 15 - are you participating? Actually, you are by reading this post and by coming back to visit on October 15th to read my post.

What is Blog Action Day?

According to their website, "Blog Action Day 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. Our aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion." Last year, the topic was the environment and this year it's about poverty.

I'll be blogging as part of Blogger Action day here and on Help My Hurt, as well as Womb Within. To participate, you blog about your regular topics, but with the theme of poverty. You can support Blog Action Day by blogging about it or helping do something about poverty. You can check the website to see you can contribute through microloans or other ways you can help.
