Today is Blog Action day. It marks a day where millions of people across the world unite in posting about a cause close to their heart. This year, it is poverty.
Poverty surrounds us all, whether we see it or not. We have the homeless, some choose it, most do not. We have the working poor, who are lucky to get one meal on the table each day. We have the millions around the world that we try and feed as well. What is in your town? How can you help?
Personally, I work with a non profit that is teaming up with others in our town to run huge food drives to try and get food to those that are hungry. We have churches that feed kids during the summer. We have groups that feed the elderly and the homeless.
But what about jobs and income that are important to keep poverty away? I can only pray for our leaders that they will find a way to keep jobs coming to this area and that those that are in need can find a job. It is a circle that can be influenced by us, one way or another.
