ONE London staff standing up this morning.
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.
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:
I’m standing up to end poverty today with @ONEcampaign. Pls RT and join me. #standup09
On Facebook, first you’ll need to become a fan of ONE.
Then post as your status:
I’m standing up to end poverty today with @ONE. Please post this as your status and join me.
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 in the pages of Guinness again this year. So start right now. Stand up.
Thank you for taking action,
Roxane Philson, ONE.org
P.S. Don’t worry if you don’t have Twitter or Facebook, you can still get counted here and spread the word by forwarding this email to a few friends and asking them to Stand Up.
