I recently had the great pleasure of attending my friends’ wedding in Seoul, South Korea - huge congratulations to Miya and Phil! It was incredible. Everything about the trip exceeded my expectations, but nothing more so than the wonderful ONE members I met there.
I always wanted to do disaster relief work. The crisis started to take off. It was in the news a lot. People were talking about it. So I went online. I saw a position for an Ebola response nurse. To me it was just the right time. I was speaking with my husband and I was saying I can’t not do this. They need people.
Today, on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, I am very excited to tell you something we could only dream of a few months ago. The majority of the European Parliament is publicly committed to support the fight against extreme poverty! THANK YOU all ONEsters - you made this happen.
This year, Europeans elected a new European Parliament. Now, the candidates to the new European Commission have also been announced. Here is why at ONE we think it is crucial to ask them to help keep the EU on the right track to end extreme poverty by 2030.
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!
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.
Calling all Canberrans, Melburnians and Sydneysiders! We're heading to Australia for the G20 Summit, and to launch a new global campaign. We'd love to you be there, so check out these events coming up.
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. That’s why ONE is going to Expanse, a one day conference in Melbourne on Saturday, August 30, bringing together hundreds of young Australians to equip a generation for a more just and equal world.
