    Concern into Action!

    Like many people, I have poverty related issues (preventable deaths, unnecessary suffering, and inadequate education just to name a few) for quite some time. Our Day to End Poverty provides a wonderful opportunity to move beyond concern into action. Written in a style that brings forward the immediacy of poverty-related issues, Our Day to End Poverty is a diverse and interesting guidebook, providing hundreds of possibilities for actions anyone can take. The authors avoid overwhelming their readers by treating poverty, with the turn of every page, as a problem we can beat through individual and collective action. Exploring the actions laid-out in the book opened doors to other possibilities, and has helped me uncover and explore the places I can help and encourage others to join me. All of this, and I am truly only beginning to make use of the book. I would venture to say that this book is a tool equal useful for an idealistic young graduate or someone considering how they could give back in their retirement years.

    A simple, powerful way to make a difference

    This book is a must read for anyone who wants to make a difference in the world. It draws you in and grabs you with the idea that we can do something to make the world better. It begins with making a personal connection to poverty, helping us understand that it is real people who suffer and those people are directly connected to us. When they suffer we must see that it is our responsibility to help them ,because we do live in one world, that we were all meant to share. The book then goes on to outline the UN Millennium Goals and shows us how they can be achieved if we get inspired about what we can do. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with images of what is wrong with the world and few stories of what we can do, this amazing book is a guide for what we can do. Laid out in simple, practical terms, it goes through a day, and shows us how we can do 'little' things that can end up making a big difference. This book can be used by teachers in schools, by business leaders who want to inspire their people, by parents in creating family projects from the 24 ways you can make a difference. I hope this book becomes a viral brand and spreads hope and inspire millions to see how be a better citizen of the world can fit into anyone's day.
