Our Day to End Poverty: 24 Ways You Can Make a Difference is a guide for readers of all walks of life to making a difference for the better at home and around the world. Using the 24-hour day as a framework, Our Day to End Poverty discusses 24 common daily activities and, in context, the things ordinary people can do to alleviate poverty during the course of their normal lives. From guidelines for charitable giving, to expanding access to the enormously successful microfinance programs, to "volunteer vacations" that enable one to travel with a purpose, to speaking up for social justice through writing letters to elected officials, Our Day to End Poverty offers a wealth of experience-tested strategies that truly make the world a better place to live in. Highly recommended.
