Social Networking to End Hunger
Beth Kanter, social networking guru, recently posted about ways to take action on the issue of hunger. She pledging to lose 10 pounds and she is encouraging her friends to sponsor her efforts. All the proceeds will benefit the Austin Foodbank. She is using her skills as a saavy social networker to generate awareness through Twitter and Tyson Food's blog. Be sure to check it out.
Wendy Wetzel, pastor from the Oregon coast, posted on her blog about our financial priorities in our nation and the current economic bailout. She recently signed the ONE Campaign's petition to ask ONE question of the presidential candidates about extreme poverty in our world. She writes:
And as America turns to the standard bearers of our major political parties for some confidence, some direction, some vision for the future of our country, I will be listening to what they say about our world and hoping for Just ONE Question on global poverty in our increasingly interconnected world. I hope they both say yes, we'll find the money, because that's important to us.
Although it's easy to forget, that's important to me.
Save the economy? Yes. Then, please, let's do what we can to save the world.
