Blog Action Day '08 - Poverty
Some will look at poverty around the world: there are many countries where poverty will grind you to death and, if you are moved to, there are many organisations that need your help.
As I'm a Londoner, I'd like you to think of the poverty that exists right here: living on the streets is when you have reached the very bottom of the pile. There's no telling how people get there - some to seek their fortune, some to escape abuse, some from drugs, some because there's nowhere left to go. You really can't judge.
To ease my conscience, I support Shelter. You can listen to this track while you are thinking.
