Blog Action Day to Fight Poverty

Poverty is the root of so much that is wrong with our world.  Its roots reach far and wide and grab at so many in every community.  The effects are devastating, not only to the community, but to families.  So many times a family is in need of just the basics to survive, and crime sneaks in and takes over the thought processes of people who normally would never think to do the things they do.  Drug dealing, prostitution, robbery, domestic violence and child abuse are only a few things that rear their ugly heads from the underbelly of poverty.

What can one person do to end this cycle?  Many things!  I have listed only a few of the worthy sites I have found.  Please, choose one thing to do today and unite with us to put an end to poverty.
