Update on UN Millennium Campaign Newsletter - STAND UP special

Sphere: Related Content

I am reblogging some of the latest information from the United Nations Millennium Campaign.

Last year, more than 116 million people - nearly two percent of the people on earth - participated in "Stand Up and Take Action" at events around the globe to demand that world leaders keep their promises to end poverty and achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. The MDGs are a set of 8 goals to eradicate extreme poverty and its root causes that 189 world leaders pledged to achieve in the year 2000.

After breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest mobilization of human beings in recorded history last year, we plan to make "Stand Up, Take Action, End Poverty Now" bigger and better than ever before this year. Nearly 2% of the world's population stood with us in 2008, and with your continued help and support we can grow that figure.

Today we are launching a brand new and very exciting "Stand Up, Take Action, End Poverty Now" song and video.


You can stream them instantly or download them to your computer.

What is even more exciting is that this year we are launching a unique online component to "Stand Up" where by taking a specific e-action you can be a part of the "Stand Up" world record.

We encourage you to check out the song and video, share it with your friends via our new Facebook page and follow us on all your favorite social media sites.
