how you can get involved
here are some ideas you should try!
#1 Sign up on an official make poverty history website to show your support, depending on which country your in, eg. onevote08.org for US, makepovertyhistory.org for UK...
#2 Buy a white band for yourself and some close friends or family that have the same enthusiasm for the cause as you do. I know a lot of you have asked where to get these from. I live in New Zealand so I can help out kiwis but I'm not sure about how the rest of the world can get them. Your best bet is to look for a buy a white band link on your country's website as mentioned in step #1. They actually have a new white band with the words 'No Excuse 2015', check it out here: www.milleniumcampaign.org, buy it here: www.noexcuse2015.org.
#3 Order more white bands to sell to your friends, family, workmates, classmates. Organize a white band stall at your school or at the mall!
#4 Spread the word. Make a speech at your school or church. Download a sample speech here: http://makepovertyhistory.org.nz/dow...
#5 On October 17 2007, join millions of people to Stand Up and Speak Out against poverty! www.standagainstpoverty.org
