Last week kicked off the first meeting of ONE in Bloomington, Indiana. We met with enthusiastic ONE members from the area to discuss the overall and current objectives of the campaign, how we first heard about ONE, as well as to brainstorm some ideas of what 2012 can hold for ONE Bloomington.
A few of the members expressed interest in reaching out to other communities they are involved with to help expand our membership, and we will also be researching any other events in the area we may be able to partner and network with. It was very encouraging to see the passion these members have for defeating extreme poverty, and at our next meeting we will create a blueprint to put some of the ideas we brainstormed into action. If you live in the Bloomington area, we hope you are able to join us for the next meeting -– we need your voice!
