Ever wondered what more you can do about world poverty? It’s a bit like the kid throwing beached starfish back into the ocean – not a hope of saving the thousands of stranded ones so why bother at all – what difference does it make? “It makes a difference to this one,” he says, chucking another into the deep. Today, I learn is Blog Action Day 2008. Blog writers everywhere are being invited to write about poverty and register through this site. The day is still young as it beginns to unfold around the globe and there are already 9394 sites with over 10 million readers registered. What’s more it is already choc-a-block full of ideas and suggestions. It’s a bit like a crowd gathering on the beach to throw stranded starfish back into the ocean.
