What You Can Do NOW
Stand Up Planet calls on all of us to stand up – to watch, learn and take action to end global poverty.
…to tell Congress you support U.S. foreign aid to end global poverty. Did you know that the United States spends less than 1 percent of its annual budget to end global poverty? By signing this pledge, you’re inviting us to stay touch and let you know the important moments to tell Congress what you think. (Oxfam America)
FIGHT GLOBAL POVERTY
…to the organizations you’ve just seen in Stand Up Planet who are working on the ground every day in India and South Africa to change lives, one by one.
