#Factivist Week is a week-long effort to show world leaders at the UN General Assembly next week that ONE members support fact-based activism in our drive to end extreme poverty. Read about Mission 1 here.
Yesterday, you learned and shared the definition of factivism. Today, let’s put it into practice.
Here are four stats from Bono’s TED Talk earlier this year that show it IS possible to end extreme poverty by 2030.
We designed them into these share graphics perfect for posting on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Read through them, then find out how to share the facts with your social networks below.

Vaccines WORK. And we’ve got the numbers to prove it.
The other part of this stat? It’s been cut in half in the past 20 years, and if we keep going at this current rate, we can bring it to ZERO by 2030.
Africa has 1 billion people out of the world’s 7 billion. If we were living in a perfect world, that means they should be using 12.5 percent.
