“Personal Blog might document a personal activity of the blogger that is helping the disadvantaged”
According to the Blog Action Day website this is what the personal blogger (i.e. me) should be writing about today to highlight poverty in the world.
I’m not sure if I am doing anything to alleviate poverty, save my own. I no longer give to charity on a consistent basis, I can’t afford it. I count almost every penny through necessity and am probably looked at as a miser for it but needs must, etc.
I think after the Irish government’s Budget yesterday, people are going to have less and less to give away to to others, needing more just to keep themseles and their families going. I have already noticed an upward trend in the number of homeless people and beggars on the streets of Dublin and this is only set to get worse. It’s not really poverty compared to other countries of the world but it is the kind that is on my doorstep and the easiest place to lend a helping hand in the absence of some helping cash 🙂
