Born Into Poverty : Blog Action Day 2008

No, I was not born into poverty. How incredibly lucky.

But I witnessed poverty every day of my childhood, growing up in India.

Children in extreme poverty.

Children who had everyday jobs.

Children who were less fortunate. Far less fortunate.

I resolved I would do my bit to help children in poverty once I am able to earn my living. I have been earning for almost 10 years and I am sorry to say I have done nothing.

Nothing for ten years. Nothing about an issue that is so close to my heart.

This is my wake up call.

Do your part to make a difference. And leave me a comment here and I will donate a $ for you.
