Today is the global day of action against extreme poverty, and around the world millions of people will be literally standing up as a demonstration of their commitment in the fight against extreme poverty. It’s the easiest of actions, but when 116 million of us do it together like last year, it’s a profound statement against extreme poverty.
ONE members take part every year, and this year we’re going a step further asking you not only to stand up, but to shout out and encourage your friends to do the same. Once you stand up, just update your Twitter and/or Facebook status to spread the word.
On Twitter just tweet:
Then post your status as:
I’m standing up to end poverty today with @ONE. Please post this as your status and join me.
If you don’t have a twitter or facebook account don’t worry, just visit the Stand Up website and show your support.
The last 2 years we’ve set a new world record, and if everyone takes part and spreads the world, we may very well go down the pages of Guinness again this year. So start right now. Stand up.
Thank you for taking action!
