Hear the Voice of Blog Action Day – and Pass It on!

You can’t see it, but there’s a flurry of behind-the- scenes activity here at BlogTalkRadio as our historic 12-hour Talkathon for Poverty Relief unfolds.

While you’re taking in all the calls and interviews from around the globe, learning more about the poverty crisis and vying for one of the many prizes being offered up by our sponsors, our talkathon team is rocking the Skype backchannel to bring you all the action.

But it’s not about us, not by a long shot.

Today is about the more than 11,000 bloggers who are helping to create a meaningful dialogue about poverty. They’re sharing ideas for rising above poverty and how to empower poverty-sticken individuals and families.

To hear just a few of those dedicatded bloggers, click here.

A special thank you to BlogTalkRadio’s Jason Tucker for putting together this wonderful Blog Action Day montage.

    i’m one of those 11,000. πŸ™‚

    for my part, i turn to sites like freerice (rice donation), kiva (microfinance), and goodsearch (donation per search), as ways to help alleviate poverty online. i also put up their banners on my blog. πŸ™‚

    saw this post via the front page of blog action day. it’s great that you’re participating. πŸ™‚

    i get the impression that a lot of people are making donations, as well as loans to kiva. πŸ™‚ i’ve seen some blogs offer to donate x dollars per comment. so already, some good is happening. πŸ™‚

    and i think i got someone to put up a goodsearch banner on her blog. πŸ™‚

    I also was one of the 11,000 blogging on Oct. 15. However, I’ve been blogging poverty and ways volunteers and donors can get involved to help end poverty for more than 3 years. I’ve been hosting a web site on this topic since 1998 and I’ve led a Tutor/Mentor Connection networking strategy since 1993.

    I hope that in the comming year we can enlist more bloggers, in more cities, who will write about volunteer-based tutoring and/or mentoring programs working in their communities, and link these blogs in an informal network that encourages idea sharing and draws more consistent attention to more of these organizations.
