One: Making Poverty History

Posted by Kevin D. Hendricks | Filed under: Featured Nonprofit

One: The Campaign to Make Poverty History"We want you to become a pest," U2 frontman Bono told MTV. "Sign here." The One campaign is a cause like no other. They don't want your cash, they don't want your donations--they just want your voice. One voice, united in an ambitious drive to make poverty history.

One brings together every major relief agency--religious, humanitarian, governmental or otherwise--with the mindset that there's enough organizations and money out there, they just need to be pushed in the same direction. And it is pulling from every demographic, from Republicans and Democrats, punk-rockers and NASCAR moms.

"It's not just a bunch of wiggy liberals, rock stars, hip-hop people, actors," says Bono. "This is not the usual suspects. This is different."

One hopes to push the U.S. government to put 1% of the federal budget towards eradicating poverty. They want to see basic needs--heath, education, clean water and food--be met in the world's poorest countries. They're calling for debt cancellation, trade reform and anti-corruption measures.

And they hope to make it happen with One voice. All they're asking is for people to sign up and let their voice be heard. It takes One voice to make poverty history.
