The ONE Campaign

I just found this over at Swerl's blog - it's from the ONE campaign to make poverty history. This is from the ONE website:

We are just days away from securing $39.8 billion for the international affairs budget -- an increase of $3.9 billion over last year.

Six senators, Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Gordon Smith (R-OR), Christopher Dodd (D-CT), and Norm Coleman (R-MN), are taking the lead by writing a letter encouraging their colleagues in the Senate to support this critical funding.

By clicking here , you can easily send an email to your senator to encourage them to sign the letter to ensure the increase goes through. I know many of us have viewed Bono's speech at the NAACP awards and wondered what we could do to help - well, this is a very simple way to support the campaign and to make your voice heard. Just thought I'd help spread the word.
