So today is the Blog Action Day.

Yes, what a depressing topic. Blog Action Day is all about raising awareness, but I honestly think awareness doesn’t mean shit if it doesn’t add up to action. Of course awareness is the first step in behaviour change, but seriously, who doesn’t know about poverty, whether it’s at home or abroad.

Perhaps it’s a good opportunity to talk about Kiva. I found this site a while ago. It’s actually quite well known, especially after Muhammad Yunus got his Nobel Peace Prize. So essentially through this site, you can lend money to people in the developing country who want to start their business but don’t have captial to do so. I like this because I know my money will be put to good use.

Now that’s something we can do and not just feeling depressed. 😀
