Blog Action Day October 15th 2008 (http://blogactionday.org/)
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. Their aim is to raise awareness and trigger a global discussion.
The Purpose Of Blog Action Day [Video here]
The goal is to create a world wide awareness on a different topic each year through the power of blogging. Blogs are a great promotion, communicator and resource of information. What better way to help promote this years topic by contributing a blog to this cause.
No Excuses. You don't have to donate money or even run in a marathon. All you have to do to spread awareness is write a blog on the topic for that day.
2007 over 20,000 Bloggers participated in the Environment movement. Over 14 million readers world wide on that day! Let's double those numbers in 2008!
One Issue, Thousands of Voices - Poverty -
Global issues like POVERTY are extremely complex. There is no simple, clear answer. By asking thousands of different people to give their viewpoints and opinions, Blog Action Day creates an extraordinary lens through which to view these issues and triggering a chain reaction of increased and positive movement throughout the world as a collective!
