Last week, ONE released an interactive platform showing Members of European Parliament (MEPs) in two categories: MEPs who have signed the ONE VOTE 2014 pledge and MEPs who haven't (yet!) Have a go now, it's really simple!
So far, an incredible 15,000 of you have sent tweets or messages to G20 Finance Ministers, asking them to stop the Trillion Dollar Scandal. We wanted to make sure they really got the message by personally handing over some of your tweets. Here are some of our favourite hand-in pictures!
I’ve called my MP before. I was amazed. It was like speaking to an actual human being. I felt silly for ever being worried about it, but this video and script will help you pick up the phone and make sure your MP is turning up on Friday to support the International Development bill.
This past July I spent my summer holiday in South Africa. Three things stood out: the overwhelming sense of community, people's determination; and their sustainable living. One student I met, Nthateng, shared a poem she had written. It articulates everything ONE stands for.
Today we are launching a new interactive tool that will allow anyone in Europe to see whether their representative in the European Parliament has endorsed the ONE VOTE 2014 campaign or not. And it then helps you contact them to either thank them or ask them for their support.
When a beautiful Brussels park turns red, green and blue, when a great sound fills the air and when people give their voices to fight extreme poverty, we get the perfect match: ONE Campaign and music festivals.
We see the impacts on the poorest of the poor and we don’t always know what we as individuals can do to make it better.

Since 4 April 2013, or 500 days before I wrote this article, I was able to secure my first 9-to-5 job, become a homeowner and join anti-poverty campaign ONE as a youth ambassador. More importantly, during this time, the U.K. Department for International Development stepped up its support of developing countries’ efforts to
"Young people think agriculture is uncool and uninspiring." This is one of the myths the Do Agric campaign debunked this year. As we celebrate International Youth Month, we need to ask ourselves if enough is being done to bring the energy, innovation and the entrepreneurial flair of young people into agribusiness.
Dutch Youth Ambassadors travelled across the country by train last week, visiting all 12 Netherlands provinces in one day with a big Train Tour they organised themselves. The goal? To raise awareness about the fact that aid works!
I hate aid. I hate what it means. I hate that it exists today. So I’m fighting to make sure it no longer exists. Hardly something you’d expect to hear from someone volunteering for an international NGO, but it is true, I hate it.
