Blog Action Day - topic is Poverty

I just signed on to today's Blog Action Day event. Hundreds of bloggers from around the world will be writing about poverty and looking at what each other is writing.

For those of you who get here, please look at the tags to the left showing topics such as maps, poverty, violence, complex problems, etc.

I've been writing about poverty, and using maps to point resource providers to places where they can work to end poverty, for the past 15 years, using this blog for the past few years.

I hope you'll adopt some of these ideas in your own writing, so that you'll blog about poverty and point to a map, or on-line database, at least once a week, so the weight of our collective efforts can begin to attract political and business and faith leaders, who will lead actions that support a distribution of needed resources (volunteers, ideas, technology, dollars, etc.) into all of the parts of the world where poverty is an everyday fact of life.
