    Our Day to End Poverty
    24 Ways You Can Make a Difference
    Not long ago the New York Times ran a front-page article about child labor as seen through the eyes of a six-year-old African indentured servant. He lives far from his family and is roused from a dirt floor to work long, hard hours, dragging a heavy wooden oar nearly his own weight and paddling and bailing out the leaky fishing boat of his master, who deals out beatings but little food. I thought about every six-year-old I knew when, out of earshot of his master, the little boy whispered to the reporter, ''I don't like it here.'' What was equally powerful was the response to the article, as readers wrote to the Times and expressed their frustration that the article didn't tell them what they could do to help. Wrote one reader who wept over the article, ''There are moments when there is value in simply feeling the deep pain of another's situation. But in an age when most of us ... already feel powerless about what happens in the world, a little bit of guidance toward action - anything to hang on to - would have been both kind and potentially helpful for all.'' Our Day to End Poverty: 24 Ways You Can Make a Difference is a book for all of us who know that there is poverty and suffering in our world and who want to know what we can do to help. This isn't a book to convince you to care about global poverty - we trust that you already do. This is a book for those of us who have felt hopeless or helpless - a book to show what each of us can do to make a difference. Our Day to End Poverty invites us to look at every day and begin thinking about poverty in new and creative ways. Inspired by the landmark bestseller 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth, this book offers scores of practical, doable (although not always simple) actions anyone can take to help eliminate poverty....If we rise to the challenge, working together, one day six-year-olds across our globe may declare aloud, ''I like it here.''
