While most of the world is focusing on the recession, fortunately bloggers are drawing attention to world poverty with blog action day. But one thing is fighting poverty in the countries that are affected, witch I believe in (and I would recommend the danish NGO Børnefonden). But I truly believe we are letting the victims down that reside in our own countries as refugees. Are we giving them faith, self-esteem and the ability to educate themselves, so they can go back to their native countries and create changes and better conditions?
Repression is a perfect way to controle a country as a dictator. The last thing you want is well educated people, that dare, and see a way out of repression and in that way - poverty.
Besides sending aid to third world countries, help locally, help daily, motivate, engage and embrace instantly - I promise to walk my talk.
