The F Word: Famine is the New Obscenity #BAD11

I am proud to take part in Blog Action Day Oct 16, 2011

Thank you Christine at Thinly Spread for making me aware of this special day:

"Once a year bloggers worldwide come together to discuss an important global issue on Blog Action Day, this year it coincides with World Food Day. The aim is to get everyone talking, debating and discussing the many issues which surround food in the world today."

She brought the ONE campaign to my attention which has this video at the heart of it:

So what can we do to help?:

1. Sign this petition ahead of the G20 summit in November
2. Post the F Word video to your facebook wall and on your blog, link to it on Twitter
3. Share their infographic which shows which countries are leading relief efforts and which are lagging behind. 
4. Write a blog post. Register for Blog Action Day (I've only just done that!) and spread the word Fight the Famine, Feed the Future
5. Share the hunger map with a friend. Other items in the news are much less worthy of our attention!

  1. Really great post. So much that we should be aware of, but this is one of the most basic. Will go off and join in x


I love it when people leave a message
