Instead of writing about the just completed Canadian election (lowest voter turnout EVER), this post is dedicated to the issue of poverty.
Today, bloggers throughout the world are dedicating their posts to the issue of poverty. More specifically, poverty alleviation.
I don’t consider myself a blogger nor an expert on how to eradicate poverty.
However, there are many people and organizations who are doing their part for the cause. And so I dedicate this post to them. Check them out.
