Hey friends! Who’s heard of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)?
The MDGs are goals that 189 leaders of the world created to help reduce poverty. They hope to achieve these goals by 2015. Usually when one thinks of reducing poverty you think of the necessities and might think that with these 8 goals we have bitten off more than one can chew. But in all reality the goals all go together and affect one another.
This is something that I feel very passionately about. You should too. Find out more here and find ways you CAN help. You CAN make a difference.
There are tons of organizations dedicating their work to poverty that need our help. Even the smallest things make a difference. Start somewhere, start now. Here are a couple that are FREE that I try to use at least once a day.
What will you do to help?
