FACE UP TO POVERTY Campaign
The Make Poverty History team has put together a new campaign to encourage Australian political leaders to "face up to poverty". Its a great campaign to get behind and so easy to contribute to...

The Blurb from their website reads:

[/b]Australia’s economy has never been stronger. Despite this, and our Government’s commitment to work with other rich nations to halve global poverty by 2015, Australia’s foreign aid continues to fall short of what is required to meet this target.

Lifting our foreign aid to 0.5% of Gross National Income (GNI) by 2010 and 0.7% of GNI by 2015 could lead to significant improvements for our neighbours in South-East Asia, including around 60,000 additional children receiving a basic education; 40,000 fewer child deaths each year; and around 11 million people having access to safe drinking water.

With an election only months away, this makes now the time to ask our leaders to Face Up To Poverty including the delivery of more and better aid. Images are powerful, so encourage the Government to Face Up to Poverty by adding your face to the campaign.

Thanks for taking the time to read..... now go take your picture and send it in!
